A classic standard in many eras of American Jazz music, this song has vocals by Dechenne and background singing by clarinetist Austin Yancey towards the end of the recording. It features trumpet and clarinet trading solos and tenor guitar playing by Tev Stevig.


Pack up all my cares and woe,
Here I go,
Singin' low,
Bye bye blackbird

Where somebody waits for me,
Sugar sweet,
So is she,
Bye bye blackbird,

No one seems to love or understand me,
Oh what hard luck stories they all hand me,

Pack my bags and light the lights,
I'll be home,
Late tonight,

Bye bye
