Now, I can hear my black name a-ringin'
All up an' down the line
Now, an' I hear my black name a-ringin'
All up an' down the line
Now, I don't believe you love me
Woman, I believe I'm just drivin' away my time, now
Well now, I have this blues before sunrise
A-with tears standin' in my eyes, now
I have the blues before sunrise
Oooh, tears standin' in my eyes
Now that make me have such a funny feelin'
Man, a feelin' I'm do to sighin'
Now last night I was layin' down dreamin'
Oh, you know an' I was dreamin' all to myself
Now last night I was layin' down dreamin'
You know an' I was dreamin' all to myself
Now an' I was just thinkin' if my woman didn't love me
I hope she ain't in love with nobody else
Spoken:
'Oh, you know I'm goin' back down in the country
You know, where old John is'
(harmonica & instrumental)
'Believe I'll go back in Alabama somewhere, you know'
