Hope Waits – Mother-in-Law Blues lyrics

It was early in the mornin', I heard a rooster crow for days
It was early in the mornin', I heard a rooster crow for days
I looked out my window and saw my baby walk away

I thought "Lord, please stop him, ain't gonna get drunk no more"
I thought "Lord, please stop him, ain't gonna get drunk no more"
I hollered out my window, "Come back baby please don't go"

I know he heard me callin', he looked back and waved his hand
I know he heard me callin', he looked back and waved his hand
I could hear him tell his momma, "That's one no good woman!"

Well, I watched my baby leave, his momma had him by the hand
Well, I watched my baby leave, his momma had him by the hand
I'd give anything I have, just to see my man again
