                          No  Sunshine  Blues
                  Words and music by Dale Cavanaugh

I woke up ‘dis morning,
            there weren’t no sunshine in my eyes.
I woke up ‘dis morning,
            there weren’t no sunshine in my eyes.
I prayed to da heavens, for dat old sun to rise.
I went out for a walk, wanted to see my friend-girl Jo.
I went out for a walk, wanted to see my friend-girl Jo.
When I gots to her house, Lord, I could not get in ‘dat door.
Now I lost my good friends, and my poor little Kitty is gone.
Now I lost my good friends, and my poor little Kitty is gone.
I pray dat my little Kitty,
            she gonna find her a bright new home.
When I go ta sleep tonight, Won’t be no sunshine again.
When I go ta sleep tonight, Won’t be no sunshine again.
I be standing in the shadows, without my Kitty or my friend.
