Now you know, baby
You told me you didn't want me no mo'
Now you know you told me, baby
'At you didn't want me no mo'
Now with me you done showed your big apple
Yo' daddy got to let you go

Now you know the day, baby
You driftin' round from do' to do'
Now you know, baby
You driftin' round from do' to do'
Now, since you done showed your big apple
I can't love you no mo'

Now baby, when I had you
You couldn't find no kind-a place to go
Now when I had you, baby
You could no kind kind-a sho' place to go
But since you done showed yo' big apple
You driftin from do' to do'

'Play that thing'

(harmonica & instrumental)

'Oh, that's tough playin, Mike'

'Oh, I guess I'll find me another one'


Now baby, since it's gon' to rainin'
And begin to snow
Baby, since it begin to rain
And begin to snow
Now, you done showed your big apple
Ain't hardly got a place to go.
