Bessie Smith - Eavesdropper's Blues lyrics

I heard the folks were talking here yesterday

As I listened by the door
Would eavesdrop
'cause they never hear no good, they say
And I heard things that hurt me so

They said I had a man I give my money to
They said I had a man I give my money to
And if I was broke he would turn my eyes all blue
They talked about my pa who was blind in one eye

They talked about my pa who was blind in one eye

They said he was a sinner and was too mean to cry
I never knock nobody, wonder why they picked on me
I never knock nobody, wonder why they picked on me

There's goin' to be a funeral if they don't let me be
I never stopped to listen, to try and hear no good news
I never stopped to listen, to try and hear no good news
I hear things about me, give me those eavesdropper's blues
