John Lee Hooker – Forgive Me lyrics

They tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
Well, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
Well, if that's the case, that's the case
I think I'm going to shoot that man, yeah, then fall down on my knees

Well, this morning, God knows that man he comes waltzing in
Yeah, he comes just waltzing in, so I got my shotgun
I broke down, I started to mow my baby down, yeah

Yeah, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
If that's the case, now, people, well, I'm gonna mow my baby down
I'm gonna mow my baby down, I'm gonna shoot the man
Well, I'm gonna shoot the man

You don't put yourself out, you don't put yourself out
You don't treat your baby right
No, no, no, no, you don't treat your baby right
But darling, there come a time you're gonna need my love again, yeah

They tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
You don't seem to understand, I've got your life right in my hands
Well, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
Yeah, anything you do
