Koko Taylor – Stop Watching Your Enemies lyrics

You know my baby told me not so very long ago
He said, "I don't love you, baby
And you got to, you got to let me go"
And that was too much, too much for me
That's why I walked the backstreets and cry

You know it hurts me so bad
To hear my baby say
Hear my baby say goodbye

He said another reason that makes me wanna leave
You ain't got enough of nothin' to keep me, keep me [unverified]
That was too much, oh, too much for me
That's why I walked the backstreets, the backstreet and cry
Oh yeah

Oh, it hurts me, it hurts me so bad
Oh, to hear my baby
Hear my baby say goodbye

He said, "You're a good woman, Etta
To treat me like you do"
He said, "You ain't done nothin' to me
I just can't stay here with you"

I stood and watch my baby as far as I could see
You know the men started runnin'
After waiving, waiving goodbye to me
That was too much, too much for me
That's why I walked the backstreets and cry
Oh yeah

You know it hurts me, it hurts me so bad
Oh, to hear my baby
Hear my baby say goodbye
Hear and say goodbye

You know it hurts me so bad
To hear my baby say goodbye
That's why I walked the backstreets
The backstreets and cry

Oh, I said it hurts me, it hurts me so bad
Hear my baby say, so long
Oh, it hurts me, hurts me, hurts me so bad
Hear my baby say, hear my baby say goodbye

Oh baby, oh, oh, it hurts me so bad
Hear my baby say goodbye
That why I walked the backstreets
That why I walked the backstreets and cry
Oh, that why I walked the backstreets and cry
Cry, cry
