“Got dem Augusta Blues”

If you don’t follow sports, or specifically golf, The Masters—one of four majors—is currently being played in Augusta, Ga.

I rolled out of bed
(dum,dum,dum)
Got me a drink
(dum,dum,dum)
Pulled back da curtains
And what did I see
That mean ol course
was laughing at me.

Oh, I got da blues
Oh yes I do
I got da blues
Dos
Damn ol
Augusta
Blues.

I dressed in my clothes
(dum,dum,dum)
Put on my spikes
(dum,dum,dum)
Went to the range
And what did I see
Crying grown men
Was cursing at me.

Oh, I got da blues
I really do
I got da blues
Dem
Low down
Augusta
Blues

I went to the tee
(dum,dum,dum)
Swung at the ball
(dum,dum,dum)
It went very far
And what did I see
A big ol splash
In the water it be.

Oh, I got da blues
I so really do
Those awful
bad blues
bad
bad
Augusta
Blues

I made it on home
(dum,dum,dum)
Last putt in the cup
(dum,dum,dum)
The crowd was cheering
And what did I see
An ugly green jacket
Was waiting on me.

Oh, yea, I da got blues
Those winning time blues
Oh I got da blues
Dos hair raising
Motivating
All the time
I’s a waiting, cause
I da champ
of dos
Augusta
Blues……….

  1. You should send this to Garcia, with a word of congratulations! 🙂
    Having been party to many, many junior golf tournaments, this is SO familiar. That splash of water now signals me digging deep for a new pack of golf balls!
    At least that awful green jacket doesn’t live in my house – it reminds me of the bottle green football socks I had to wear, with elastic band-like garters, as part of my PE kit at school, even at the age of eighteen!
