"This song was written by John Lee Hooker
About his wife, her name is Maudie
Everytime he has an argument with her
He has to write a new verse to keep her happy
He was over here at London a short while back
And he taught me this song ......."

Oh Maudie, baby, I love you
Mmm, baby, I love you
Yeah, you've been gone so long
Girl, I miss you so
Oh Maudie, why did you hurt me?
Mmm, Maudie, I said why did you hurt me?
You know I need your sweet lovin' like a flower needs the rain
Sometimes when they'd have an argument
He'd take her by the hand and say,
"Maudie, you know I love you
You know I need you
And I got just one thing to say baby - ho!"
Hey Maudie, baby don't you know I love you
Oh, Maudie, I said baby don't you know I love you
I've been gone so long, God, I miss you so much
Sometimes Johns old lady
She'd turn around to him and say,
"John, if you don't quit your messin' around baby,
I'm gonna walk right outta that door
With my bag in my hand."
John would say, "Hey!"
Well, Maudie, sweet little girl, baby,
Oh Maudie, be my sweet little girl, baby,
When you touch my hand
My head is all in a whirl now baby
I love you Maudie
I said I love you Maudie
Oh, love you Maudie
Ooh, love you Maudie
You know I need, I need, I need, need, yeah
I said Maudie, baby, I love you
Oh Maudie, baby, I love you
I love you Maudie
You've been gone so long,
How I've missed you too much
I love you.
