I was born on the muddy water
I didn't know right from wrong
My ma said, ''now look here son
I'll show you how it's done
Take you a woman and treat her right
She'll be by your side night and day
The first time you deceive her
You've broken her spell''
But then I had bad blood
Like a fool I fell where I stood
I was walking in the rain with my shoes untied
Tryin' to find a dry place to hide
To hide.
Well I'd rather sleep than say a word
I don't believe a word is heard
The first time I deceived you
I held it inside
Take you a woman and treat her right
She'll be by your side every night and day
The first time you deceive her
You've broken her spell
I held it inside
Like a fool I swallowed my pride
I was walking in the rain with my shoes untied
Tryin' to find a dry place to hide
I was walking in the rain with my shoes untied
Tryin' to find a dry place to hide
To hide.
I was walking in the rain
