Badly Mistreated Man-Carl Martin
E position, standard tuning

I worked hard, baby, I worked hard every day
I worked hard, baby, I worked hard every day
I even turned over in your hand every cent of my pay

I been done so dirty, treated so low-down mean
I been done so dirty, treated so low-down mean
You've even accused me of women that I ain't never seen

People, what's the use of lovin', when I can't see why I should?
People, what's the use of lovin', when I can't see why I should?
Especially when you got a woman and she don't mean you no good

SOLO

I woke up this mornin', got on a stroll
Met my baby, got her told,
"Look-a-here, baby, you're thinkin' wrong.
Let your papa help you to sing this song.
I grabbed my coat and hat, down the road I'll start.
Before I would work I'd rather part.
I wouldn't work for no human bein',
Neither no woman that I've ever seen.
Eighteen hundred, ninety years,
All of my women sit in rockin' chairs.
But ever since nineteen and twenty-three,
All of my women been workin' for me.
I got a mind, never work no more.
I been badly mistreated, I been drove from door to door."
