Lyrics
If my mother hadn't a-died, lord my father left his child at home.
If my mother hadn't a-died, lord my father left his child at home.
Well my life wouldn't be so miserable baby, I wouldn't feel so all alone.
I was born in Alabama.
Yeah, well I was raised up in Tennessee
I was born in Alabama.
Yeah, well I was raised up in Tennessee.
While I lived through all this sorrow someone's always tried to hurt poor me.
Well, I'd rather be lyin' dead, sleepin' way down in my grave.
Well, I'd rather be dead, sleepin' way down in my grave.
Than to live all this sorrow. Yeahah! And misery everyday.
