Blues in the Night

Johnny Mercer

Tom: A
My mama done tol' me, when I was in knee pants,  
My mama done tol' me, 'Son,  
A woman'll sweet talk and give ya the big eye,  
     B7           E7                  A    
But when the sweet talkin's done,  
     E7           Am7                                           E7  
A woman's a two-face, a worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing   
        A    D9           A  
The blues   in the night.'  

A7 E7 Am7 D7 Now the rain's a-fallin', hear the train a-callin', A 'Whoo-ee.' (My mama done tol' me,) D9 Dm6 E7 Hear that lonesome whistle blowin' 'cross the trestle, A 'Whoo-ee.' (My mama done tol' me.) E7 A whoo-ee-duh whoo-ee, B7 E7 A D9 A Ol' clickety clack's a-echoin' back the blues in the night.
D9 Dm6 The evening breeze'll start the trees to cryin' E7 C7 B7+ F#7/5- Am6 B7 E7 Dm6 E7 And the moon'll hide it's light when you get the blues in the night; D9 Dm6 E7 C7 B7+ Take my word, the mockingbird'll sing the saddest kind of song, F#m7/5- Am6 B7 E7 Dm6 Gm6 E7 He knows things are wrong, and he's right. From Natchez to Mobile, from Memphis to Saint Joe, Wherever the four winds blow; I've been in some big towns and heard me some big talk, But there is one thing I know: A woman's a two-face, a worrisome thing who'll leave ya t' sing The blues in the night. Refrain: Coda: A A7 B7 E7 Oooo - oooo - oooo, oooo - oooo - oooo, B7 E7sus4 A My mama was right, there's blues in the night.
