I remember reading this back in 1981 and have never forgotten it, however I don't know who wrote it. Can someone identify it?

I have so little sorrow
All them blues
That followed me for so long
Have gone on off somewhere else
To drive another woman almost mad
The sun shines at my back door
Birds sing outside my window
And although this is the city and the tears that marked my face
Have dyed my skin a deeper hue
A color full of blood and yearning
I have so little sorrow
All them blues
Them bad bad blues
Have gone on off
Somewhere else
To drive another woman almost mad

    It is " Song" by Patricia Jones. It can be found in Women Surviving Massacres and Men: Nine Women Poets: An Anthology edited by E. Ethelbert Miller
