“Why Don’t You Do Right?” (originally recorded as “Weed Smoker’s Dream”) is an American blues- and jazz-influenced pop song written by Joseph “Kansas Joe” McCoy in 1936. A minor key twelve-bar blues with a few chord substitutions, it is considered a classic “woman’s blues” song and has become a standard.
