Memphis Slim — This Life I'm Livin' lyrics

I remember way back, in nineteen and twenty-nine
I had plenty woman then money
But I very much short in mind

But if I could just go back
And start my life brand new
Well, well, I would control myself more better
Woo, well, well, I would know just what to do

Used to spend a hundred dollars, just to have a big name
I used to spend a hundred dollars, just to have a big name
Well, well, if my woman asked me for ten dollars
Woo, well, well, I'd give her twenty, and say, "Keep the change"

Now people used to be so nice to me
I often wondered why
But now it's just, "Hello Slim"
As they keep walkin' by

But If I could just go back
And start my life brand new
Well, well, I would control myself more better
Woo, well, well, because I know just what to do

Yes, yes, yes, yes

In those days I had plenty, to loan or either give
Now in those days I had plenty, to loan or either give
Well, well, but now things are a lot different,
Woo, well, well, from the life that I used to live
