My baby mistreat me
That ain't right at all
She got a man in my bedroom
Have to sleep out in the hall

That's why I just keep uh drinkin'
Tryin' to drive my blues away

The little girl I love
She long and slim
Every time she walk
You know it's too bad Jim

That's why I just keep uh drinkin'
Tryin' to drive my blues away

Well all right

You know I love you baby
I love you for myself
If you don't love me darlin'
You wont love nobody else

That's why I just keep uh drinkin'
Tryin' to drive my blues away

She make me look at things
I don't wanna see
She keep me up all night
You know I need to sleep

That's why I just keep up drinkin'
Tryin' to drive my blues away
