I left my meal-ticket rider barefooted, my partner slipped in, bought her a new pair of shoes.

Lord, I'm worried here, worried everywhere I go.
Worried here, mama, worried everywhere I go.

Wokened up this mornin', kept awoke till the break of day.
Woke up this mornin', kept awoke till the break of day.
I hates for a woman to nag me, I just made my getaway.

I woke up this mornin', woke up ’bout half past ten.
I woke up this mornin', Lord, about half past ten.
Ease my head in the window, she's singin' Lemon's worried blues again.

Worried so bad, can't tell my stockin's from my shoes.
Worried so bad, can't tell my stockin's from my shoes.
I laid down last night with Lemon's lowdown worried blues.

What makes that rooster, Lord, he crows at the dawn of day.
Kid-man better watch his footsteps for the headknocker’s on his way.
