Sick Bed Blues (Skip James)

Layin' sick, honey, an in my bed I'm layin' sick, honey, an in my bed I'm layin' sick, honey an in my bed I used to have some friends But they wished that I were dead In awful pain an deep in misery Awful pain an deep in misery Awful pain an deep in misery I ain't got nobody To come and see about me Ev'ry dog, baby, got a day Ev'ry dog, baby, got a day Ev'ry dog, baby, got a day But I said, 'Please, don't you treat me this-a way' The doctor came, lookin' very sad The doctor came, lookin' very sad Your doctor came, lookin' very sad He diagnosed my case And said it was awful bad He walked away, mumblin' very low He walked away, mumblin' very low He walked away, mumblin' very low He said, 'May get better But he never get well, no mo' I hollered, 'Oh Lord, Lord, Lordy, Lord Oh Lordy, Lord, Lord, Lord' Oh Lordy, Lord, Lord, Lord' I been so badly misused An treated just like a dog I've got a long trip And I'm just too weak to ride I got a long trip And I'm just too weak to ride I got a long trip An I'm just too weak to ride Now it's a thousand people Standin' at my bedside You take a stone You can bruise my bone You take stone And you can bruise my bone You take a stone And you can bruise my bone But you sho' gon' miss me When I'm dead and gone I been over a ocean An I've been across a sea Been over a ocean An I been across a sea Been over a ocean And I been across the sea I ain't found nobody Would feel my sympathy.
