Mississippi Fred Mcdowell – I Heard Somebody Call lyrics


Lord, I heard somebody
Keeps on callin' me
Lord, I heard
Lord, I heard
Yes somebody, keeps on callin'
Callin' me
Lord, I'm worried
Baby, don't you wonder

Lord, I heard it
Lord, I heard it
Yeah, somebody
Keeps on call


I got a gal in Cuba
I got three are in Spain
Gal in Cuba
Lord, I got
Three are in Spain
Lord, woman in Memphis
Scared to call

Woman in Memphis, Lord
Lord, I'm scared
Scared to call her name
Lord, Lord
Lord, Lord


I got the meanest woman
Lord, that you ever seen
Meanest woman
Lord, I have ever seen

Ask for whiskey
Give me gas, gasoline
Ask for whiskey, and give me
Lord, that the mean, meanest woman
Lord, I ever
Ever seen, Lord.

(guitar to end)
