Blues Song In The Spotlight: Robert Johnson - Drunken Hearted Man



Lyrics:

I'm a drunken hearted man
my life seem so misery

I'm the drunken hearted man
my life seem so misery

And if I could change my way of livin'
it t'would mean so much to me

I been dogged and I been driven
eve' since I left my mother's home

I been dogged and I been driven
eve' since I left my mother's home

And I can't see no reason why
that I can't leave these no-goods womens alone

My father died and left me
my poor mother done the best that she could

My father died and left me
my poor mother done the best she could

Every man likes that game you call love
but it don't mean no man no good

Now, I'm the drunken hearted man
and sin was the cause of it all

spoken: Oh, play 'em now

I'm a drunken hearted man
and sin was the cause of it all

And the day that you get weak for no-good women
that's the day that you bound to fall
