Peetie Wheatstraw – Sleepless Night Blues lyrics

Now, let me tell you
I'd like to see my baby, now
I said, let me tell you
I like to see my baby, now
I bet I'd wanna see her
Hoo, Lordy, you don't know how

Well, I know my little woman
She can't sleep at night
Know my sweet woman
She can't sleep at night, mm
Well, now she's got it in her mind
That her man gon' treat her right

Pretty babe, pretty baby
You may look for me most any day
Pretty baby
May look for me most any day
Well, really doesn't matter
Hoo-ooo, I ain't gon' tarry away

Now, how would you feel
Babe, now might come home today?
Well now, how would you feel
Baby, if I come home today?
You wouldn't have no time, little mama
We'll pass the time away

Hoo-hoo-ooo, look for me tomorrow
I'll be home, I'm sure
Look for me tomorrow
Babe, now I will be home, I'm sure
I want you to hug and kiss me baby
Now, when I come walkin' in yo' door.
