somebody have mercy and tell me what is wrong with me
somebody have mercy and tell me what is wrong with me
sometimes i don't know how i stand the things this woman do to me

let me tell you
when i think about how she do me, the tears fall down like rain, like rain
when i think about how she do me, the tears fall down like rain, like rain
when i think i've got her chained down, she starts actin' up again

oh let me tell you
i'm goin' down to the bus station with a suitcase in my hand, yes i am
i'm goin' down to the bus station with a suitcase in my hand, yes i am
i'm gonna grab me an armful of greyhound and ride just as close i can
do that thing for me now

(harmonica solo)

let me tell you one more time
somebody have mercy i wonder what is wrong with me, lord have mercy
somebody have mercy i wonder what is wrong with me, yeah
sometimes i don't know how i stand the things this woman do to me

do that one more time, my fellas
i'm standin' here wonderin', baby, with a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes
i am
standin', wonderin', baby, with a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes i am
oh i got a long way to get there and i got-a some time to go

(scat singing, to fade)
