Low Down Dirty Dog Blues

Son House


Well, you know that Sun is goin' down
I said behind that ol' western hill
I said behind that ol' western hill
You know I wouldn't go a thing
Not against my baby's will

You know, when that's bad
I declare there's two black bags
I declare there's two black bags
You know my woman done quit me
Looks there's a whole world of pain

You know she stopped writin'
Won't even send me no kind of word
I said she wouldn't send me no kind of kind word
She turned her little back on me
'Bout some low down thing she heard

You know, I'm goin' away baby
I'm gonna stay there a long time
I said I'm gonna stay there a long time
You know not comin' back honey
Oh, baby, till you change your mind

I wake up in the morning
Feelin' sick and bad
I said soon every morning
I be feelin' mighty sick and bad
Thinking 'bout the old times
Baby that I once have had

If I don't go crazy, I say I'm gonna lose my mind
I believe I'm gonna lose my mind
'Cause I stay worried, bothered all the time

Lookie here baby, sit right here on my knee
I said sit right down on my knee
Well I just want to tell you
Just how you been doin' me

What do you want for me to do
I said what do you want me to do
I've been doing all I can honey
Just trying to get along with you
