Well, I ain't goin' down
Baby, that dark road by myself
Baby, I ain't goin' down
Baby that dark road by myself
I'm gonna leave you, sweet mama
I'm gon' take somebody else

Well, I won't take my bucket
To your no good well, no mo'
Said, I won't take my bucket
To your no good well, no mo'
When I wants cool water
I'm gon' make Alberta go

Alberta, Alberta
What makes you treat me so?
Alberta, Alberta
What makes you treat me so?
You don't treat me no better
Any man you had befo'

'Pick it, pick it! '

(instrumental & harmonica)

She's a long tall woman
She's got coal black, curly hair
She's a long talll woman
She's got coal black, curly hair
She's got airplane movements
She can make it anywhere.
