EDDIE COCHRAN (1958/68) - Summertime Blues

‚Äč

I'm a-gonna raise a fuss

I'm a-gonna raise a holler

About workin' all summer

Just-a trying to earn a dollar

Every time I call my baby

Try to get a date

My boss says "No dice, son

You gotta work late"

Sometimes I wonder

What I'm-a gonna do

But there ain't no cure

For the summertime blues

2 riffs

Well my mama and papa told me

"Son, you gotta make some money

If you wanna use the car

To go a-ridin' next Sunday"

Well, I didn't go to work

Told the boss I was sick

"You can't use the car

'Cause you didn't work a lick"

Sometimes I wonder

What I'm-a gonna do

But there ain't no cure

For the summertime blues

2 riffs

I'm gonna take two weeks

Gonna have a fine vacation

I'm gonna take my problem

To the United Nations

Well, I called my congressman

And he said, quote:

"I'd like to help you, son

But you're too young to vote"

Sometimes I wonder

What I'm-a gonna do

But there ain't no cure

For the summertime blues
