My baby done left me
This was written as a kind of "summary of the blues", so it does deliberately use one or two cliches. I hope its different enough to work, though. Your opinions?

Please Mr stranger won't you spare me a dime?
I've got to find a way to pass a little time.
Ain't got no money, got no place to stay
But that don't matter to me after today

My baby done left me
My baby done left me
My baby done left me all alone


I asked the doctor could he ease my pain
I got the shivers burning through me again
Woke up this morning and I wished I was dead
Ain't got but one thought running through my head

My baby done left me
My baby done left me
My baby done left me all alone

 
- solo -

My baby done left me
My baby done left me
My baby done left me all alone


Please Mr stranger won't you spare me that dime?
I've got to find a way to pass a little more time.
I've got the blues, Lord I've got them so bad
I've gone and lost the best girl I ever had.

My baby done left me
My baby done left me
My baby done left me all alone

I'm no lyric expert, but it looks fit for blues
Are you a musician, if so why not add some music to it, if you are not a musician or other, why not offer a collaboration here on bandAMP, The members here have done quite a few, you can listen to them, just go to the home page on the left hand side of the page and click on the collaboration tab.

I am a musician, I have music for this one, I just don't have a recording, and I'm not set up to record myself just now. I hope to change that soon, but for now you'll have to put up with lyrics and any back catalogue I can transfer to the PC.

If you reply on the quote tab I will get an email to advise.
Do you have any experience setting up a basic home studio, you can do it on quite a low budget.

I really like this.
It's the blues for the sake of the blues... all very true and all said before, yes very cliché but yet jumbled up and said differently.
It's got the right flow and rhythm and I can imagine it being a right end of the night tear jerker ! Even if they are all drunk!
