Lightnin' Hopkins – Goin Back Home lyrics

Goin back home, just as soon as God break day.
Goin back home, just as soon as the good Lord break a day.
Whoa, you know this ain't no place for me,
And I don't think po' Lightnin wanna stay.
Married woman, she the sweetest thing, man, in this world.
Married woman, she the sweetest thing, man, in this world.
You know why I know it? I got one,
Every night she lays in po' Lightnin's (quilt?)
Sometimes, she calls me her little boy,
Listen at me, I calls her my little girl.
Sometimes, she call me her little boy,
Listens at me, sometimes I call her my little girl.
Yes, when that woman go to kiss me,
Po' Lightnin think he's out of this world.
