when my first wife left me lyrics – john lee hooker

when my first wife left me, she left my heart in misery
when my first wife left me, she left my heart in misery
ever since that day boy, i don’t think i’ll ever love
again

if i can get her back again, i’ll never roam no more
if i get her back again, boys, i never roam no more
i had a good wife, but i did not treat her right

it’s my fault, only have myself to blame
it’s my fault, it’s my fault boys, i only have myself to
blame
she would have been home right now, if i hadn’t wanted
every woman that i seen

i found out one thing, these women don’t mean you no good
i found out one thing people, these women don’t mean you
no good
you mistreated a good girl for some woman, that she’d
turn around and turn her back on you
yes, yeah

i’m having bad luck, having bad luck ever since she been
gone
i’m having bad luck, bad luck, bad luck, ever since my
baby been gone
when she was at home, lord, i did not treat her right
