Sam Cooke – Somebody Have Mercy lyrics
Somebody have mercy and tell me what is wrong with me
Somebody have mercy and tell me what is wrong with me
Sometimes I don't know how I stand the things this woman do to me
Let me tell you
When I think about how she do me, the tears fall down like rain, like rain
When I think about how she do me, the tears fall down like rain, like rain
When I think I've got her chained down, she starts actin' up again
Oh let me tell you
I'm goin' down to the bus station with a suitcase in my hand, yes I am
I'm goin' down to the bus station with a suitcase in my hand, yes I am
I'm gonna grab me an armful of greyhound and ride just as close I can
Do that thing for me now
(Harmonica solo)
Let me tell you one more time
Somebody have mercy I wonder what is wrong with me, lord have mercy
Somebody have mercy I wonder what is wrong with me, yeah
Sometimes I don't know how I stand the things this woman do to me
Do that one more time, my fellas
I'm standin' here wonderin', baby, with a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes
I am
Standin', wonderin', baby, with a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes I am
Oh I got a long way to get there and I got-a some time to go
(Scat singing, to fade)
