I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues

Writer(s): Harold Arlen / Ted Koehler

I gotta right to sing the blues, I gotta right to feel low-down
I gotta right to hang around, down around the river
A certain gal in this old town, keeps draggin’ my poor (old) heart around
All I see, for me is – misery
I gotta right to sing the blues, I gotta right to moan and sigh
I gotta right to sit and cry, down around the river
I know the deep blue sea will soon be callin’ me
It must be love – say what you choose, I gotta right to sing the blues
