James Carr – You've Got My Mind Messed Up lyrics

Said I wasn't gonna
Tell nobody else
But I just can't keep it
All to myself now

For as long as I've
Been running around
I finally met a little girl
That really got me down now

Baby, you've got
My mind messed up
Little girl, little girl
You sure got my
Mind messed up now

I go to bed alone
And I can't sleep
Sit down at the table
Ooh, Lord, I can't eat

Somebody, please, please
Help me now, oh, oh, oh

Sugar plum dancing on in my mind
Every day you're with me
Seem like Valentine's now

I walked a rainbow, Lord
And I chained the moon
Walk around the world
And get back before noon

Baby, you've got
My mind messed up
Darling, sure got my
Mind messed up now

Eyes wide open, Lord
And I can't see
Anywhere the woman go
She can lead for me

Somebody just gotta
Just gotta help me
Oh, oh wee, oh, now

Baby, you've got
My mind messed up now
Sure got my mind
Messed up now

You my love
With all of my heart
I'll do anything
You want me to do

For you
I'd climb the highest mountain
Baby, for you
I'd swim the deepest sea

Anywhere you go
You can lead for me

I, I love you
Oh, I love you
I, I love you, baby
