Lyrics



Want to tell you about the girl I love

My she looks so fine

She's the only one that I been dreamin' of

Maybe someday she will be all mine

I want to tell her that I love her so

I thrill with her every touch

I need to tell her she's the only one I really love


I got a woman, want to ball all day

I got a woman, she won't be true, no

I got a woman, stay drunk all the time

I said I got a little woman and she won't be true


Sunday morning when we go down to church

See the menfolk standin' in line

I said they come to pray to the Lord

With my little girl, looks so fine

In the evening when the sun is sinkin' low

Everybody's with the one they love

I walk the town, keep a-searchin' all around

Lookin' for my street corner girl


I got a woman, want to ball all day

I got a woman, she won't be true, no no

I got a woman, stay drunk all the time

I said I got a little woman and she won't be true


In the bars, with the men who play guitars

Singin', drinkin' and rememberin' the times

My little lover does a midnight shift

She followed around all the time

I guess there's just one thing a-left for me to do

Gonna pack my bags and move on my way

'Cause I got a worried mind sharin' what I thought was mine

Gonna leave her where the guitars play


I got a woman, she won't be true, no no

I got a woman, want to ball all day, yeah, yeah

I got a woman, stay drunk all the time

I got a little woman and she won't be true


I said she won't be true


No, yeah, no, yeah, no, yeah, no, yeah (hey, hey, what can I say?)


Ah (hey hey, what can I do) keep on, keep on

(No, no, what can I say?) she won't

Keep on, keep on (hey, hey, what can I do?)

(No, no, what can I say?)

(Hey, hey, what can I do?)

(No, no, what can I say?) hey, hey what can I do, I got a women she won't be true

(Hey, hey, what can I do?) oh oh hear what I said I got a woman wanna bawl all day

(No, no, what can I say?) keep on keep on

(Hey, hey, what can I do?)
