Evenin' air blues
Language: English 
Folks, I come up North
Cause they told me de North was fine
I come up North
Cause they told me de North was fine
Been up here six months
I'm about to lose my mind.

This mornin' for breakfast
I chawed de mornin' air
This morin' for breakfast
Chawed de mornin' air
But this evenin' for supper,
I got evenin' air to spare

Believe I'll do a little dancin
Just to drive my blues away
A little dancin'
To drive my blues away,
Cause when I'm dancin'
De blues forgets to stay.

But if you was to ask me
How the blues they come to be,
Says if you was to ask me
How the blues they come to be
You wouldn't need to ask me:
Just look at me and see!
