I can't sleep at night I can't eat a bite 'Cause the man I love He don't treat me right He makes me feel so blue I don't know what to do Sometime I sit and sigh And then begin to cry 'Cause my best friend Said his last goodbye There's a change in the ocean Change in the deep blue sea, my baby I'll tell you folks, there ain't no change in me My love for that man will always be Now I can read his letters I sure can't read his mind I thought he's lovin' me He's leavin' all the time Now I see my poor love was blind Now I got the crazy blues Since my baby went away I ain't got no time to lose I must find him today Now the doctor's gonna do all that he can But what you're gonna need is an undertaker man I ain't had nothin' but bad news Now I got the crazy blues
