(harmonica intro)

Inez, my heart get to beatin' like a hammer
And my eyes gets a-full of tears
Inez, my heart get to beatin' like a hammer
And my eyes gets a-full of tears, now
You only been gone twenty-four hours
But it seem like a million years

Inez, If I ever mistreat you, mm
God knows I don't mean no harm
Inez, If I ever mistreat you, mm
God knows, I don't mean no harm, no
Because I ain't nothin' but a little country boy
And I'm a-right down over the cotton farm, now

Inez, I don't believe you think I'm nothin'
You don't believe, I think I'm nothin' but a clown, now
Inez, I don't believe you think I'm nothin'
You don't think I'm nothin' but a little clown
Now, an' I was lookin' for you last night
An' you was way on the other side of town, now

(harmonica)

Play for me, ya'all know how it feels, don't ya

Although I know you love me
Inez, I know that's the reason, I keep on hangin' around
Although I know you love me, now
Inez, I know that's the reason, I keep on a hangin' around, now
Now, but now sooner when I get me some money
I'm gonna leave your bad luck town, now.
