about

Originally recorded by Billie Holiday in 1946, this beautiful standard is performed in traditional Jazz style. Sombre and reflective vocals contrast a wistful piano solo, light brush of the drums and bluesy acoustic bass. Helen Coleman (vocals) Daniel Philippe (Piano) AJ Hall (Bass) Nathan Goldman (Drums) recorded at Ghostgum Studio, Brisbane.

lyrics

"Good Morning, Heartache" (Words and music by Dan Fisher, Irene Higginbotham and Ervine Drake).


Good morning, heartache, you ole gloomy sight
Good morning, heartache, thought we'd said goodbye last night
I turned and tossed until it seemed you had gone
But here you are with the dawn...
Wish I'd forget you
but you're here to stay
It seems I met you
When my love went away
Now everyday I start by saying to you
Good morning, heartache, what's new?

Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you, no how
Just leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Straight through Sunday blues

Good morning, heartache, here we go again
Good morning, heartache, you're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hangin' around
Good morning, heartache, sit down

Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you, no how
Just leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Straight through Sunday blues

Good morning, heartache, here we go again
Good morning, heartache, you're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hangin' around
Good morning, heartache, sit down.
