The song Shipwreck Blues is performed by Bessie Smith in the album named The Essential Bessie Smith in the year 1997 .

Send Shipwreck Blues Ringtone to your Cell

Captain, tell your men to get on board
I sure see 'em just pull into another shore

I'm dreary in mind and I'm so worried in heart
Oh, the best of friends sho' has got to part

Blow your whistle captain, so your men'll know what to do
Blow your whistle captain, so your men'll know what to do
When a woman gets dreary, ain't no tellin' what she won't do

It's cloudy outdoors as can be
Oh, it's cloudy as can be
That's the time I need my good man with me

It's rainin' and it's stormin' on the sea
It's rainin', it's stormin' on the sea
I feel like somebody has shipwrecked poor me

Send Shipwreck Blues Ringtone to your Cell
