I done cried a river of tears
This you may not believe
But I've been crying for five long years
Afraid of all my fears

Love has got me now
In a terrible bet
I done lost the best little woman
That I ever had

So direct Me
Straight to my baby's love
Direct Me
Straight to my woman's love

Shame on me shame on me
I made a big mistake
When I see my babe again
I'm gonna bake me her favorite cake

Ten thousand dollar reward
For the first the one that finds her
When I get my hands on her, y'all
I'm gonna just chain and bound her

Somebody direct Me
Straight to my baby's love
Direct Me
Straight to my woman's love, ou, ou

Deputy sherrif On your trail
The FBI, I know,
They won't fail, they can't fail
They gonna bring you back

Somebody direct Me
Straight to my baby's love
Direct Me
Straight to that woman's love

I got the feeling
I wanna feel it, y'all
Say I gotta feeling girl
Lord, I wanna feel it, now, now
I really do, really do, really, really
I really do
Ou wi, I need your love, now
Needda your lovin' now
Somebody direct me, now...
