​Understand

This song is by B.B. King and appears on the album My Kind Of Blues (1961).

I've traveled from town to town
Seems like everybody wanna throw me down
'Cause I'm a poor man
But I'm a good man, understand

I went down to the train station
Looked up on the wall
My money was too light, baby
Couldn't go nowhere at all
'Cause I'm a poor man
But I'm a good man, understand

The burden that I carry is so heavy, you see
It seems like there ain't nobody in this world
Who would wanna help poor me

Well, I would be all right, baby
Just give me a break
Good things come to those who wait
'Cause I've been a good man
But I'm a poor man, understand
