lyrics

When I left my home this morning
You know I didn’t even cry
When I left my home, you know I didn’t even cry
I just bowed my head
Felt like bees were in my eyes

Guess I’ll head on down the road
Just to see what I can find
Head on down the road, see what I can find
Gotta be some work on round here
Lord, I’m gonna lose my mind

Well now I got me a fancy suit
And I’ve got me a dress to wear
Put on my dancin’ shoes
Get caught out in the midnight air
Lord knows I done spent my blood and sweat and all of my tears

When I left my home this morning
You know I began to cry
When I left my home this morning, sho’nuff I began to cry
Got to thinkin bout what I done did to get here
It makes me wanna die
