EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Lovesick Blues’ – Frank Ifield

What was the number one song in the UK on 8th November 1962?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

Frank Ifield had a good year, he’s back once again with Lovesick Blues, which was number one for 5 weeks.

Oh Jeez. Off he goes again, quasi-yodelling all over the place. Hank Williams’s version of this song was a huge success and when Frank dared to cover it, it was not received well over in the US. Understandably so, I have strong suspicions that listening to it has made my ears bleed. Fingers crossed, I’ll have no more Frank Ifield to review. Soz Frank.

Lyrics

I got a feeling called the blues lord
Since my baby said goodbye
And I don’t know what I’ll do
All I do is sit and cry, oh lord
That last long day she said goodbye
Lordy well I thought I’m gonna cry
She do me, she took you, she got the kind of lovin’
Lord love to hear her when she called me sweet baby
Such a beautiful dream, I hate to think it’s all over
I lost my heart it seems
Well I’ve grown so used to you somehow
Now I’m nobody’s sugar daddy now
And I’m lonesome
I got the the lovesick blues
Well I’m in love, I’m in love with a pretty little gal
That’s what’s the matter with me
Well I’m in love, I’m in love with a pretty little gal
But she don’t care about me
Oh well I tried and I tried just to keep her satisfied
But she just would not stay
And now that she is leaving
This is all I can say
I got a feeling called the blues lord
Since my baby said goodbye
And I don’t know what I’ll do
All I do is sit and cry, oh lord
That last long day she said goodbye
Lordy well I thought I’m gonna cry
She do me, she took you, she got the kind of lovin’
Lord love to hear her when she called me sweet baby
Such a beautiful dream, I hate to think it’s all over
I lost my heart it seems
Well I’ve grown so used to you somehow
Now I’m no nobody’s sugar daddy now
And I’m so lonesome
I got the the lovesick blues
And I’m a-lonesome
I got the the lovesick blues
