I think I've got most of it, but the words in [ ] are unclear to my ears. 

If you notice anything else wrong, please let me know.  Any help is much appreciated.  Thanks!

Lyrics so far:

I?m goin in [hand?] can?t get nothing here
Goin in [hand?] can?t get nothing here
I?m hungry as a hound I can?t travel no where

I can?t have but to worry how my good friend done
And have but to worry how my good friend done
And my money [bout?] a dollar now won?t give me nickel one

Mother told me times and times again
Mama told me times and times again
Anybody laughs in my face just can?t be my friend

Lord look down on poor me pity my worried case
Lord look down on me pity my worried case
Help me do right once more I?m gonna change my free hearted ways

Yes give me one friend to keep me from feeling so sad
Yes give me one friend keep me from feeling so sad
Cause you know I want a friend like the one heart Adam had

Blind Arthur:
"Heaven", instead of "hand"?

LB:
This is how I hear so far. I hear DONE in one line then GONE in the next. He's also not saying heart, he's kinda saying "that" but with an H. I've heard that type of slang before. Hope this helps and doesn't add confusion.


I cant help but to worry how my good friend Done
Cant help but to worry how my good friend Gone
And my money BY THE dollar, now wont give me nickel one

Mah-mah told me times and times again
Ah Mama told me times and times again
Anybody laughs in my face just can?t be my friend

Yes give me one friend to keep me from feeling so sad
Yes give me one friend keep me from feeling so sad
Cause you know I want a friend like the one that Adam had



dj:
I Can't make out that word in the first verse, but I have some minor corrections for the last verse:

JES' give me one friend to keep me from feeling so sad
JES' give me one friend keep me from feeling so sad
Cause you know I want a friend like the one WHAT Adam had

LB:
Ah that does match dj, good ear on that one. Funny how you can hear it so clearly once the right word is found.
