Well, I woke up this mo'nin'
With ramblin' on my mind
Well, I woke up this mo'nin'
With ramblin' on my mind
Well, my babe had quit me
An I couldn't hardly keep from cryin'

She brought me up north
When I was just out of school
She brought me up north
When I was just out of school
Since she got me up north
She tried to play me for a fool

When a woman says she love you
Man, don't pay that no mind
When a woman said she loves you
Man, don't pay that no mind
She'll have you out of yo home
Just like I'm outta mine

(guitar, piano & bass)

When you see me leave you
Hang crepe on your door
When you see me leavin'
Hang crepe on your door
Well, I won't be dead
But I ain't comin' here no more.
