ALBERT KING lyrics - Walking The Back Streets And Crying

ALBERT KING
"Walking The Back Streets And Crying"
(Sandy Jones)

The other day a woman stopped me
She said daddy let me talk to you
She said now listen I aint beggin
I'm just lonesome and I'm blue
Once I had a good man
But I didnt know how to act
By the time I learnt my lesson
My good man wouldnt take me back
She cried that was too much for me
Thats why I walked the back street and cried
But it hurt me so bad, yeah
Yeah that the man I misused said goodbye

I said rap on baby

I sent a friend to talk for me
And she say I did the best I could
I lied like a dog for you
I just couldnt do you no good
Thats why I hit the backstreet there
Just as drunk as I could be
The man I had misused
He passed and didn't look back at me
I said its too much for me
Thats why I walk the backstreet and cry
Well, it hurt me so bad, it hurt me so bad
To hear the man I misused say goodbye

Ahhh...

I had the galls to call him
He said you lowdown as you could be
And last time we had an argument
You know called the police on me
They raid me out of my house woman
While you stood there on and grinned
Now the police can't help you little girl
'Cause they can't bring me in
She said that was too much for me
Thats why I walk on the backstreet and cry
Ohh it hurt me so bad, it hurt me so bad
To hear the man I misused say goodbye

That's what she said
Yeah, come on

Around the globe...

Whooo...
