Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'
Oh, nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

Well, if I only had my way
Don't you know the graveyard would be the place
My man would lay
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

I pawned everything that I had this mornin'
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah
I pawned everything I could get my hands on this mornin'

I pawned my ring, gold watch and chain
I would have pawned myself
But don't you know I felt kind of ashamed
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

Lord, Lord, I feel I could scream
Scream and cry this mornin'
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I feel like I could scream, scream and cry this mornin'

I feel like I could scream, I holler and cry
But I'm too stout hearted, I'd rather die
'Cause nobody knows
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

Girls, let me tell you
If your man stays out all night till mornin'
I said if your man stays out
And don't come home till mornin'

Don't waste your breath by fussin' at him
Just maul him on the head with your rollin' pin
'Cause nobody knows
Nobody knows how I feel this mornin'

Yeah, yeah, I feel like I could scream
Scream and cry this mornin'
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, I feel like I could scream
Yeah, scream and cry this mornin'

I feel like screamin' and I could cry
But I'm too stout hearted, don't you know I'd rather die
'Cause nobody knows the trouble I've seen
And nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

I'd rather be a sinker on a fishin' line this mornin'
I know you heard me I said
I 'd rather be a sinker on a fishin' line this mornin'

I'd rather be a sinker on a fishin' line
Than to have my mind frustrated all the time
'Cause nobody knows
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

I even hate to hear my daddy's name this mornin'
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, I hate to hear
I hate to hear my daddy's name this mornin'

I even hate to hear, to hear your name
I can kill you quicker than an express train
'Cause nobody knows
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

Well, well, well
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'
Oh, nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

Lord, nobody knows the way I feel
I ain't gonna holler but I'm gonna squeal
'Cause nobody knows
Nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'

I'm leavin' here
On a southbound train this mornin'
Oh, I'm leavin' here
On a southbound train this mornin'

I'm leavin' here on a southbound train
Nothing's gonna bring your sweet baby back here again
'Cause nobody knows the way I feel this mornin'
