Laura Nyro – When I Was A Freeport And You Were The Main Drag lyrics

You took my heart, misery. You taught me blues.
Well I got a lot of patience baby, that's a lot of patience to lose. I'm crying.
I'm mad at my country, now I've been treated bad
When I was a freeport and you were the main drag.

Broken blues, I just don't know. Little bird flying by my window, take me when you go.
I looking at these times and it's bound to drive me mad.
When I was a freeport and you were the main drag.

What did I do? Everybody's putting me down, I keep running but the law kept coming around.

So fare thee well, happiness, cause I've got blues
And I got a lot of patience baby, that's a lot of patience to lose.
I'm a woman and this is my due time, I've been treated bad.
When I was a freeport and you were the main drag.
