good fool is hard to find lyrics – albert collins

my baby came home last night
and she looked at me real cool
she said, “albert, you ain’t nothin’ but a overgrown fool,
i’m gonna leave you, gonna leave you behind.”
i said,
” baby i’m gonna tell you, that a good fool is hard to find.”

now, baby if you leave me, it would hurt me to my soul
i just can’t understand why baby, any woman could be so cold
but a good fool, a good fool, is hard to find
take a lesson from me baby
a good fool is hard to find

the last time you left me, i didn’t have much to lose
you left me with nothin’ woman
but a pair of thin-sole shoe
but a good fool, a good fool is hard to find
take a lesson from me baby
a good fool is hard to find

now listen to me baby, i think you should be told
when they made yo’ daddy
somebody went an broke the mold
a good fool, a good fool is hard to find
you take the lesson from me woman
a good fool is hard to find
