Lord, I believe she been lookin' for me in Mama late hour at midnight
Lord, I believe she been lookin' for me, yeah
Mama, late hours at midnight, now
Now but I never come home
Until the sun was shinin' bright, now
Lord, yo' raggin' and yo' twistin', yeah
A-baby, naturally don’t take no 'ffect on me, no Lord, yo' raggin' an yo' twistin'
A-naturally don’t take no 'ffect on me, now
Now because I used to have a woman
An this woman could do just shake just like a willow tree
'Well, alright Lillian, alright Lillian
(piano, a little harp & instrumental)
Now when I get a call from way across the country, yeah
Baby, when ain’t nobody else around, now
I get a call from way across country, yeah
A-baby, when ain’t nobody else around, now
Now Jeremy, don’t you feel bad, hm!
A-when your real woman have throwed you down, now?
If I could just receive a letter, oh A-people from Des Moines, Iowa-ay, now
Lord, if I could just receive a letter
People from Des Moines, Iowa-ay, now
Now that would kind-a help me with my trouble, yeah
Oh Lord, an that would drive my blues away, now.
