ROCKS IN MY BED Duke Ellington 1941 as rec by Ella Fitzgerald September 1956 Los Angeles also rec by- Ivie Anderson w Duke Ellington & his Orch '41 Big Joe Turner w The Freddy Slack Trio '41 Betty Roche '61 Joe Williams '63 Sarah Vaughan '79 Lambert Hendricks & Ross My heart is heavy as lead Because the blues have done spread Rocks in my bed! Of all the people I see, Why do they pick on poor me And put rocks in my bed? All night long I weep, So how can I sleep With rocks in my bed? There's only two kinds of people I can't understand, There's only two kinds of people I can't understand, That's a deceitful woman and a hard-faced man! She took my man away and ain't goin' bring him back, She took my man away and ain't goin' bring him back, She's lower than a snake down in a wagon track! I got rocks in my bed, I got rocks in my bed, Rocks in my bed, I got rocks in my bed. Underloved, overfed, My man's gone, so instead I got rocks in my bed! Underloved, overfed, My man's gone, so instead I got rocks in my bed! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2011)
