Lord I'm broke, I'm hungry
Ragged an' dirty too
Broke an' hungry
Ragged and dirty too
If I clean up, sweet mama,
Can I stay all night with you?

Lord, I went to my window, babe
I couldn't see through my blinds
I went to my window, babe
I couldn't see through my blinds
Heard my best friend comin' now an'
I thought I heard my baby cry.

Lord, if I can't come in here, babe
Then just let me sit down in your door
If I can't come in here, baby
Then just let me sit down in your door
And I will leave so soon
That your man won't never know.

Ah, how can I live here baby,
Lord, an' feel at ease?
How can I live here baby
Lord, an' feel at ease?
But that woman that I've got,
Man, she does just what she please.

Lord, you shouldn't mistreat me, baby
'Cause I'm young and wild
Shouldn't mistreat me, baby
Because I'm young and wild
You must always remember
But baby you was once a child.

Lord, I'm leaving in the mornin'
If I have to ride the blind
Leave in the mornin'
If I have to ride the blind
Well I've been mistreated
And I swear that I don't mind dyin'.  up
