Well well somebody done changed that lock on my door
Well well somebody done changed that lock on my door
Because the key I got well well won't fit that lock no more

Well well I come home last night about half past ten
Put my key in the lock but I couldn't get it in
And then I knowed then I had to knock on the door
Because the key I got won't fit that lock no more
Well I knowed then, the key won't fit that lock no more
Because somebody done changed that lock on that door

Well well I looked through the keyhole, she was sittin' on the bed
She was talkin' to somebody 'cause I seen her nod her head
I heard her say "Daddy, you don't have to go"
Because I done had that lock changed on that door
Well I know they done changed that lock on that door
Because the key I got well well won't fit that lock no more

Well well she changed her bed around, she even changed her stove
She changed the carpet on the floor
But the change that hurt me, she changed that lock on that door
Because the key I got well well won't fit that lock no more

Well well I walked down the street, looked where I used to go
She's got a mean black snake and I can't come there no more
And he done changed, changed that lock on that door
And because the key I got well well won't fit that lock no more
