blue yodel no. 5 lyrics – jim reeves

de-yo-del-lay-ee-oh, del-lay-ee-ay, del-lay-ee

it’s raining here, stormin’ on the deep blue sea-ee,
lawd, it’s raining here, stormin’ on the deep blue sea.

ain’t no black-headed mama can make a fool out of me.
yo-de-lay-ee, uh-lay-ee-oh, del-lay-ee.

now i can see a train coming down the railroad track.

i see that train, coming down the railroad track
and i love to hear, the bark of that old smoke stack.

yo-de-lay-ee, uh-lay-ee-oh, del-lee-del-lay-ee.

talk about troubles, that’s all i’ve ever known.
talk about yer troubles, that’s all i’ve ever known.
now, if i hadn’t have been a man,
i would have stayed at home.

yo-de-lay-ee, uh-lay-ee-oh, del-lee-del-lay-ee.

i may need clothes; i may need hat and shoes;
i may need clothes; i may need hat and shoes–oos.
makes no difference what i need; i’ll never sing the
blues.

de-yo-de-lay-ee-oh, lay-ee-ay, del-lay-ee…
