My Mind Is Trying To Leave Me

soundclip


by Albert Collins
recording of 1983

from Don't Lose Your Cool (Alligator ALCD-4730), copyright notice

I went to breakfast this mo'nin, down to the corner bar
I thought I heard my baby call my name, an' it came from so far
I started runnin' an' answerin', like a crazy fool would do
Aha, ya' see, my woman gone away an' left me
An' now my mind is tryin' to leave me too

Now my friend stepped out the bar
An' stopped me an' offered me a drink
I went in an' had a double
An' I began to think about my baby
Aha, like a crazy fool would do
You see, my woman gone away an' left me
An' now my mind is tryin' to leave me too

Oh!

Ha-ah, I went into the barber shop an' ordered ham an' eggs
An' each barber gave me fifty cent
They thought I was tryin' to beg
An' I started cryin' like a baby (like a baby, ha)
Like any fool would do
You see my woman gone away an' left me
An' now my mind is tryin' to leave me too
