About Everyday I Have The Blues
Pinetop Sparks started singing this song in 1935 in bars in St. Louis and recorded in June 1935. Memphis Slim (Peter Chatman) reworked the song and wrote new lyrics in 1949. It then became a blues standard and was recorded steadily by both blues and jazz singers, including Joe Williams, B.B. King, and Lambert, Hendricks and Ross.

Lyrics

Everyday, everyday I have the blues
Everyday, everyday I have the blues
Well, you see me worried, baby
Because it’s you I hate to lose

I’m gonna pack my suitcase
Move on down the line
Oh, I’m gonna pack my suitcase
Move on down the line
Well, there ain’t nobody worried
And there ain’t nobody cry in’

Nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Speakin’ of bad luck and trouble
Well, you know I’ve had my share

Seems to me everyday, everyday
Everyday I have the blues
Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday I have the blues
You see me worryin’, baby
‘Cause it’s you I hate to lose

Nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Speakin’ of bad luck and trouble
Well, you know I I’ve had my share

Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday I have the blues
