Lyrics
Feeling mighty blue by myself
One old lonesome shoe by myself
Now that love’s behind me
You’ll find me by myself

I just sit and stare at the floor
Just don’t seem to care anymore
Since my baby’s gone
Got a padlock on my door

That old black cat keeps hanging ’round
But I ain’t blaming him cause things are bad
It ain’t his fault I’ve gone and lost
The only love I ever had

Lord, lord, I miss him so, it’s no lie
And I’m so “double o” I could die
So I’ll be here, just me here by myself

Català – (Trista) Jo Sola
Sentint-me molt trista jo sola
Una vella solitaria sabata, jo sola
Ara que l’amor em dona l’esquena
Em trobaràs sola

Simplement, m’assec i miro al terra
Ja no semblo preocupar-me de res
Des que el meu xicot ha marxat
Tinc un candau a la meva porta

Aquest vell gat negre segueix rondant
Però no estic culpant-lo perquè les coses vagin malament
No és culpa seva que jo hagi perdut
L’únic amor que mai he tingut

Senyor, senyor, l’enyoro tant, no és cap mentida
I estic tan sola que podria morir
Així que aquí estaré, només jo, aquí sola
