Walking The Back Streets And Crying

This song is by Albert King and appears on the album I Wanna Get Funky (1974).

The other day a woman stopped me
She said daddy let me talk to you
She said now listen I ain't beggin
I'm just lonesome and I'm blue
Once I had a good man
But I didn't know how to act
By the time I learnt my lesson
My good man wouldn't take me back
She cried that was too much for me
That's why I walked the back street and cried
But it hurt me so bad, yeah
Yeah that the man I misused said goodbye

I said rap on baby

I sent a friend to talk for me
And she say I did the best I could
I lied like a dog for you
I just couldn't do you no good
That's why I hit the backstreet there
Just as drunk as I could be
The man I had misused
He passed and didn't look back at me
I said it's too much for me
That's why I walk the backstreet and cry
Well, it hurt me so bad, it hurt me so bad
To hear the man I misused say goodbye

Ah...

I had the galls to call him
He said you lowdown as you could be
And last time we had an argument
You know called the police on me
They raid me out of my house woman
While you stood there on and grinned
Now the police can't help you little girl
'Cause they can't bring me in
She said that was too much for me
That's why I walk on the backstreet and cry
Oh it hurt me so bad, it hurt me so bad
To hear the man I misused say goodbye

That's what she said
Yeah, come on

Around the globe...

Whooo...
