I Put My Trust in You

This song is by John Lee Hooker and appears on the album Mad Man Blues (1967) and on the compilation album The Real Folk Blues / More Real Folk Blues (2002).

I couldn't believe, I couldn't believe you'd let me down
I just couldn't believe, I couldn't believe, you would let me down
I've been too good to you baby, you hurt me with what you did

My friend tried to tell me, you didn't mean me no good
I didn't believe a word he said, I couldn't believe it, whoo
I couldn't believe, you would let me down
I done lost everything that I had baby
I can't believe you would let me down

You goes downtown, to the judge
You tell the judge, everything you got, give it to me
You looked up at me
Hit the road Jack
And don't come back no more
I couldn't believe, you let me down, baby
I'm leavin' now baby, done lost my home
My brand new car baby
I know, I know another man
Gonna move in
But I can't believe, treatin' me the way you did

Now baby, look-a here baby
How could you treat me the way you did baby
I just couldn't believe, I couldn't believe you would let me down
Good as I been to you baby
I'm goin' now baby
All I, all I got, all I got, is on my back
I've gotta go now baby
I better go now baby, baby
I just couldn't believe, hmmmm
Ooh, ah yeah, yeah, aye baby
