"Well when I was a young-un they used to teach me to play music like this here..." 

When I look in your face baby 
When I look in your eyes 
I can tell pretty mama I been wastin' time 
'Cause you don't really love me 
You just love me for what I am 
But you best treat me right, woman 
Gonna lose your money man 

Well when I first met you baby, you was a red light girl 
But I tried to take you to better world 
But you would not listen 
Still you think I am a fool 
Well you had it made in the shade, baby 
Don't let that tree fall down on you 

Well I work the railroad each and every day 
Well I work real hard tryin' to make my pay 
Lord I never tell you what you supposed to say 
Girl you had it made in the shade 
Don't let that tree fall down on you
