I am a worried man, worried all day long
I am a worried man, I'm worried all day long
Yes, that woman I'm lovin', boys, she done done me wrong

Lord, I rambled and I wandered, cried the whole day long
Lord, I rambled and I wandered, cried the whole day long
Don't a man feel worried when you find your dough-roller gone?

Lord, I went home last night, baby, peeped out my window blinds
Lord, I went home last night, I peeped out my window blinds
Said, my good gal done quit me, boys, I'm down in my mind

I wanted to tell you women, how you keep your man at home
Wanted to tell you women, how you keep your man at home
You love him soon there in the mornin', start him rollin' in your arms

I am a worried man, he worries all night long
Play it for Papa Joe!
I am a worried man, he worries all night long
I'm gwonna leave here in the mornin', feel like my time ain't long

Malvina, don't get worried, when your good man done leave this
Malvina, don't get worried, when your good man done leave this town
Lord, I woke up this mornin', feelin' down in my mind
