pounded on a rock lyrics – bobs

have you seen my woman walkin’?
with a basket on her head
she looks so strong and healthy
lord, she’s not underfed
pounded
pounded on a rock
she’s goin’ down to the river
gonna dump that laundry in
gonna take those soiled and dirty things
and make ’em white again
pounded
pounded on a rock
oh, yeah, i love my woman
with her arms of thunder and steel
but when she wraps those arms around me
it’s mixed emotions that i feel
when she comes home at night
i feel joy, and i feel fright
i know she means to please me
but lord, the way she squeeze me
feels like i’m pounded
pounded on a rock
some folks say i’m lazy
a worthless, shiftless skunk
they see me in the daytime
staggerin’ round like i was drunk
i get up to feed the chickens
but that’s about all i can handle
i got to rest and save my strength
’cause she’s burnin’ both ends of my candle
that woman’s burnin’ all my candle
pounded
pounded on a rock (and it hurts!)
feels like i’m pounded
pounded on a rock
pounded on a rock
