about

Toured China, fell in love, left China, broken heart. I lived happily ever after.

lyrics

Been around the world, guitar in my hand
Seen a lot places, don't understand

     Why baby... I got these China Doll Blues

I tried sleeping, all day long
I drank my whiskey, dusk till dawn

    But baby...I still got these China Doll Blues

I'm a bad boy, you know I been around
And I know girls in almost every town

    (Chorus)

    Not sure what happened, just one of those things
    I got a bad, case of the blues, when I left Ol' Nanjing.

I tried so hard, to keep my cool
It just don't matter, I'm a love sick fool

   (Chorus)

I can take em, or leave em, it's dis or dat
I can love and leave em, at the drop of a hat

   But not you... (Chorus)

    Not sure what happened, just one of those things
    I got a bad, case of the blues, when I left Ol' Nanjing.
    Somebody call the Doctor, and tell her the news
    That I've come down with a real bad case, of them China Doll Blues
