bending like a willow tree lyrics – albert collins

if you don’t bend you’ll have to break
it’s good advise but a little too late
nothin’ but trouble everywhere i go, yeah
what i’ve been through you never know
got me down on my bendin’ knee
weepin’ and bendin’ like a willow tree

i’m not lyin’ it’s not a fake
you can tell by the look on my face
just so much a man can take
sooner or later he’s gotta break

yes, i’m down on my bendin’ knee
weeping an’ bendin’ like a willow tree

like a bitter pill that ya have to take
i’m beggin’ you baby, you say it’s too late
for goodness sakes please give me a break
just a little more that i can take
got me down on my bendin’ knee
weepin’ and bendin’ like a willow tree
