INTRO

Having so much bad luck and trouble, Ďtil it Ďbout to carry me down
Having so much bad luck and trouble, Ďtil it Ďbout to carry me down
ĎF I donít find my baby, gonna make me lose my mind

Came in this morniní, just about the break of day
Yes, I came in this morniní, just about the break of day
I didnít see my baby nowhere, wonder where she gone away to stay (Spoken: Well alright man)

PIANO/GUITAR SOLO (Spoken: Thatís what Iím talkiní Ďbout, donít pay no attention to these women, stand up for your right, they donít mean you no good nohow)

Bye-bye baby, if we never meet again
Bye-bye baby, if we never meet again
Itís not my fault, baby, done all in the world I can

OUTRO

Thanks for posting that, Blues Vintage. I had never heard or heard of Little Son Willis before. I'm hearing a couple of places differently, see what you think.

   In 2.3, I didn't see my baby nowhere, wonder where she gone away to stay (He sticks the first syllable of "away" on "gone".)
   In the spoken comment during the solo, I think the last sentence is, "THEY don't mean you no good nohow.

I think he sings 'carry me down' instead of tearing me down

Thanks John and Thomas. I made the changes.
I wasn't sure about "tearing" from the beginning.
