​Been Gone Too Long

This song is by Billy Boy Arnold and appears on the compilation The Alligator Records 25th Anniversary Collection (1996).

Life has made me
Pay an awful price
I try and gamble with ya
But you're using crooked dice

Somebody's gotta suffer
Somebody's shore gotta feel some pain
If it's gonna rain down misery
How come it all has to fall on me?

Money you've made me
Some very fast friends
And just like you made them
You're gonna break them in the end

Somebody's gotta suffer
Somebody's shore gotta feel some pain
If it's gonna rain down misery
How come it all has to fall on me?

I've had my share, of love life and money
I've lost all 3 ways
I'm here to tell ya that shore ain't funny
Me and my money parted, so did my love and I

Life don't mean a thing
And I wish that I could die
Life has made, a whole lotta fools
Always teach ya something
You never learn in school

Somebody's gotta suffer
Somebody's shore gotta feel some pain
If it's gonna rain down misery
How come it all has to fall on me?
