​Long Ways From Home

This song is by Louise Johnson and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).

Lord I woke up this morning, blues all around my bed
Lord I woke up this morning, blues all around my bed
I never had no good man, I mean to ease my worried head

Now now now now now, I cried like a newborn child
Now now now now now, I cried like a newborn child
Lord even when I was a baby, I wasn't satisfied

Well I'm going I'm going, daddy to wear you off my mind
Well I'm going I'm going, daddy to wear you off my mind
Because you keeps me worried baby, and troubled all the time

I said Lord have mercy, I mean Lord have mercy on me
I said Lord have mercy, I mean Lord have mercy on me
I said Lord have mercy, mercy's all I need

Lord???, and I fell down on my knees
Lord???, and I fell down on my knees
Well I done cried, cried, Lord have mercy on me
