My lover's mouth
Been so good to me
My lover's mouth
Been so good to me
It promised joy for a jailhouse
And a broken key

[Chorus:]
Woah, God, I got a job 
On the chamber's walls of heartache
Woah, God, it's hard
On the chamber's walls of heartache
Baby don't love me
Shuffle
'Cause another one do,
Another one do

My man's run off
Leave me motherless
My man's run off
Leave me motherless
That man, he ran
Just like a break in a dam

[Chorus]

Three, four, five, seven
Oh, you'll never get to heaven
Don't talk wonder
'Cause God broke thunder above
You were lookin' to hurt
And I was hurtin' to love
My my my my my
My my, well,
If it isn't everlovin' you
My my, well,
If it isn't everlovin' you

Go live as long as an elephant
Go live as long as an elephant
But there won't be
More lovin' woman than me
Woah, got to get gone
Better ride from the hill on my heartache
Woah, got to get gone
Better ride from the hill on heartache
Baby don't love me
Shuffle 'cause another one...

My baby don't love me?
Hitchike
And damn be done
Damn be done [Repeat x 7]
