Lightnin' Hopkins – Don't Think 'cause You're Pretty lyrics

Don't think 'cause you're pretty, women, got every man in
You know you ain't doin' nothin' but tearin' yo' own
Reputation down

You know the blues a bad feelin', when you have them
'Bout the break of day
You know the blues a mighty bad feelin', when you have
Them long 'bout the break of day

Well, you look for her in the bed, where yo' baby used to
Mmm, what you want with a rooster, he won't crow 'for day?
What you want with a woman, she won't do what she say?
