Happy Woman Blues Lyrics

Artist: Lucinda Williams
Album: Happy Woman Blues

written by Lucinda Williams

Lucinda Williams lead vocals and acoustic guitar
Mickey White acoustic rhythm and lead guitars, harmony vocals
Rex Bell electric bass and harmony vocals
Andre Matthews electric rhythm, lead and slide guitars
Ira Wilkes drums
Mickey Moody pedal steel guitar
Malcolm Smith fiddle and viola

Tryin' hard to be a happy woman.

But sometimes life just overcomes me,
Everyday I'm workin' just to pay my dues.
Lay down at night, my mind is so confused.
Goin' down south with the New York City blues,

Gotta hit the road before I blow a fuse,
I might buy me a Cadillac or a Chevrolet.
I don't care what model as long as it takes me away

SOLO

I've been hiding my heart in a trunk.

Can you come see me when my ship has sunk
You can give me loovin, that I can't refuse,
And love is the one thing that's sure to cure my blues.
Goin' down the road with a heave heart,

Tryin' to find lightness in the dark,
Tryin' to live my life, tryin' to get satisfied.
My mind is in the city but my heart is in the countryside.

SOLO

Tryin' hard to be a happy woman.

But sometimes life just overcomes me,
Everyday I'm workin' just to pay my dues.
Lay down at night, my mind is so confused.
Lay down at night, my mind is so confused.

From Lucinda Williams "Happy Woman Blues"
Folkways Records 1980
