Used to be, sweetest apple on the tree
Used to be, sweetest apple on the tree
Hey, hey, baby, you ain't what you used to be

You had a nail, and you drove it in the board
You had a nail, and you drove it in the board
Lord, my daddy ain't here, but he's somewheres on the road

I woke up this morning with the same thing on my mind
I woke up this morning with the same thing on my mind
I had blues and trouble and was worried all the time

Lord, my heart struck sorrow, and my tears come rolling down
Lord, then my heart struck sorrows, and my tears come rolling down
I'm gonna buy me a ticket and beat it for another town

I went to the bus station, and I looked up on the board
I went to the bus station, I looked up on the board
Lord, and your bus ain't here, but it's further on down the road

I sat by my window, looked through the window pane
I sat by my window, and looked through the window pane
Lord, the tears from my eyes, just like drops of rain
