Five Long Years (Version 1)

soundclip


by Eddie Boyd
recording of 1972

from King Of The Blues 4 CD Box Set (MCA MCAD4-10677), copyright notice

If you ever been mistreated, then you know just what I'm talkin' about
If you ever been mistreated, then you know just what I'm talkin' about
I worked five long years for one woman, and she had the nerve to put me out

I got a job at a steel mill, truckin' steel like a slave
I got a job at a steel mill, truckin' steel like a slave
For five long years every Friday, I went straight home with all of my pay

If you ever been mistreated, you know just what I'm talkin' about
If you ever been mistreated, you know just what I'm talkin' about
I worked five long years for a woman, and she had the nerve to put me out
