I've been lookin' for you, days have passed and gone
I've been lookin' for you, days have passed and gone
It seem like you oughta leave me somethin', woman, for to travel on

My time is numbered, I can't stay here long
Ahh, my time is numbered, I can't stay here long
Says, I know you're gonna miss me, woman, when I'm dead and gone

I wouldn't treat a dog like you people treat poor me
I wouldn't treat a dog like you people treat poor me
You treat me just like a man you ain't never seen

SPOKEN: Have your way

SOLO

When mama gets to lovin', I gets in my old last stage
Oh, when she gets to lovin', gets in my last old stage
Says, I believe to my soul it's gonna carry me to my grave

Mmmm, mmmm w/ensemble for 8 bars
Says, I believe to my soul, gonna carry me to my grave
