Early In The Morning

lyrics

Early in the morning and I can't get right,
I had a little time with my baby last night,
Now it's early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I can't get nothing but the blues

I went to all the places where we used to go,
Even went to her house but she don't live there no more,
Now it's early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I can't get nothing but the blues

I went down to Eli's to get something to eat
Troyce looked at me and said, "Paris, you sho' look beat!"
Now it's early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I can't get nothing but the blues

I had a lot of money when I started out,
Now I can't find my baby and all my money's run out
Now it's early in the morning, early in the morning,
Early in the morning and I can't get nothing but the blues
