somebody have mercy lyrics – otis rush

somebody have mercy
and tell me what is wrong with me, yeah
somebody have mercy
and tell me what is wrong with me, yeah
well, now sometime i don’t know how i stand
the thing this woman do to me

when i think about how she treats me
tears fall down like rain, like rain
when i think about how she treats me
tears fall down like rain, like rain
well, when i think i got her tail down
she starts actin’ up again

well, now let me tell you
goin’ down to the bus station
with a suitcase in my hand, yeah
goin’ down to the bus station
with a suitcase in my hand
i’m gonna catch me an armful of greyhound
and ride just as far as i can

somebody have mercy
and tell me what is wrong with me, yeah
somebody have mercy
and tell me what is wrong with me, yeah
well, now sometime i don’t know how i stand
the things this woman do to me

well, i’m standin’, wonderin’, baby
with a matchbox hole in my clothes
standin’, wonderin’, baby
with a matchbox hole in my clothes, yeah
well, now i got a long way to get there
and i got a some time to go

well, now let me tell you
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
