Well I woke up this morning
found a note tied to my bed
baby’s gone and left me,
oh that’s what she said
and the fire’s gone
I swear the lord mistreat me
and the devil done did me wrong

it’s hot as hell in the summer
but all I feel is rain
she bought herself a ticket
all on down the train
oh it’s a lonesome song
I swear the lord mistreats me
and the devil done did me wrong

girls will be girls and
boys will be boys
I just want to drink a bottle of wine
go to town and make some noise
and the fires gone
I swear the lord mistreats me
and the devil done did me wrong
