Yesterday we met the 1917/1918 Henry Creamer/Turner Layton early blues classic, “Everybody’s Crazy ‘bout the Doggone Blues but I’m Happy,” which we at All Around This World think is grand. Sing along with me to our slightly-shortened version:
Ev’ry body’s crazy ‘bout the doggone blues, but I’m happy, whew so happy
Ev’ry body’s crazy, but if I must choose, no doggone blues for mine.
I get plenty to eat, never have to worry
Shoes on my feet, I don’t have to hurry
Ev’ry body’s crazy ‘bout the doggone blues but I’m happy all the time.
