Monday Morning Blues

I woke up this morning
I woke up this morning
I woke up this morning with the Monday morning blues

I couldn't hardly find
I couldn't hardly find
I couldn't hardly find my Monday morning shoes

Monday morning blues
Monday morning blues
Monday morning blues made me leave my home

I've been laying in jail
I've been laying in jail
I've been laying in jail for six long weeks today

Lord, tomorrow morning
Lord, tomorrow morning
Lord, tomorrow morning's gonna be my trial day

I asked the jury
I asked the jury
I asked the jury, "tell me, what might be my fine"

"get a pick and shovel"
"get a pick and shovel"
"get a pick and shovel and go down in the mine"

that's the only time
that's the only time
that's the only time I ever felt like crying

my heart struck sorrow
my heart struck sorrow
my heart struck sorrow and the tears come rolling on down

I woke up this morning
I woke up this morning
I woke up this morning with the Monday morning blues
