Before long, before long
I'm gonna make you grieve and moan
Before long, before long, baby 'fore long

When I had money baby, you was good to me
But now I'm broke and hungry and you's cruel as you can be
But before long, before long, baby 'fore long

Last night you called me a low down, dirty name
Woke up Monday mornin', and done the same old thing
But before long, 'fore long, baby 'fore long

It won't be long, before the break o' day
Gimme my shirt and tie baby, I'll get out on my way
But before long, you'll need me, yes, ba-baby 'fore long

Before long, before long
I'm gonna make you grieve and moan
Before long, before long, baby 'fore long

You in good health now baby, and good and strong
But before long, baby, you'll be down to skin and bone
But, before long, before long, baby 'fore long

I'm going now baby, kiss me goodbye
I know you don't love me baby and I don't see how you cry
But before long, you'll need me, baby 'fore long

Before long, before long
I'm gonna make you grieve and moan
Before long, before long, baby 'fore long

Seem like I 'streated you to dog me all the time
Look like it do you good somebody, the same (one that?) saw me cryin'
But 'fore long 'fore long, baby 'fore long
