All day long, I hold my cup
Waiting for someone to come along
To pick and fill it up

I got the blind man blues, I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues, as blue as I can be

Your little diamond, don’t worry me
That’s the way it is, I’m blind and can’t see

I got the blind man blues, I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues, as blue as I can be

Some people speak, some pass me by
Some say things, that make me wanna cry

I got the blind man blues, I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues, as blue as I can be

I wouldn’t be here if I could only see
Wouldn’t look for no sympathy
wouldn’t have to live in fallin' tears
I got ___________________________
Shoe need fixing, I need meal
Nobody knows, the way that I feeel

I got the blind man blues, I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues, as blue as I can be

One of these days, I don’t know when
I won’t be covering this corner, never again

I got the blind man blues, I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues, as blue as I can be

I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues
I got the blind man blues
