Sonny Boy Williamson I – The Right Kind Of Life lyrics

Now an I'm only twenty-fo' year
I just declare an I've been married twice
Yes, I been married twice
Oh now an I'm only twenty-fo' year
I just declare an I been married twice
Yes, I been married twice
Well now you people know by that mean
Oh that I had been livin' the right kind of life
No, not the right kind of life

Now my mother often sit down an talk wit' me
Talk wit' me about being so wild
Yes, being so wild
Now my mother often sit down an talk wit' me
Talk wit' me 'bout being so wild
Yes, about being so wild
Well then she said, 'I'm scared that wimen an' whiskey
Is gon' be the ruin of my only child'
Yes, my only child'

Now but you know how boys an girls is now-a-days
They won't pay their mother no mind
No, not their mother no mind
Well you know how boys an girls is now-a-day

Well then when they go out an stay all night long
Yo' mother standin' in her back do' cryin'

Well, but someday
Someday people, I'm gonna change my mind
