Don't Think Cause You're Pretty

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the album Lightnin' and the Blues (1955) and on the compilation album Texas Blues Giant (2010).

Don't think 'cause you're pretty, women
Got every man in town
You know you ain't doin' nothin'
But tearin' yo' own reputation down

You know the blues a bad feelin'
When you have them 'bout the break of day
You know the blues a mighty bad feelin'
When you have them long 'bout the break of day

Well, you look for her in the bed, where yo' baby used to lay
Mmm, what you want with a rooster, he won't crow 'fo day?
What you want with a woman, she won't do what she say?
