I'm worried in mind, stay worried all the time
Someday I'll be satisfied
It's your time now, but it's my time after a while
Oh say, if things don't get no better
I'm gonna move on down the line

'Cause when you was my baby
I treated you nice an' kind
But baby, I have changed my mind
I was crazy 'bout you, baby
Crazy as a man could be
So now when I leave ya now baby, don't try an' follow me

You gonna wake up one-a these mornin's, and it won't be long
And look for me an' I will be gone
So bye-bye baby, babe you know you've done me wrong
So try your best to forget, that I ever held you in my arms

Yes, yes, yes

You gonna worry 'bout me, one a-these old lonesome days
An' your daddy be far away
So long peoples an' sweetheart, I'll soon be on my way
You're goin' to be sorry, that you let me go 'round still
