John Lee Hooker - Decoration Day lyrics


Peoples, I had a woman.
She was nice n' kind to me in ev'ryway.
Peoples, I had a woman.
She was nice n' kind to me in ev'ryway.
Lord, she died she left me.
I sing the blues on ev'ry Decoration Day.

Lord, I was standin' around my baby's bedside.
When my Lord, taken my baby away.
Lord, I was standin' around my baby's beside.
When my Lord, taken my baby away.
Well, well, when it hurt so doggone bad.
Lord, I hung my head an cried.
'Yes, so sorry!'

She said, 'Daddy please don't worry.'
'Cause ev'rybody's got to go.'

'Daddy please don't worry.'
'Cause ev'rybody's got to go'.

Well, well, well, well.
Lord, the best woman.
God knows I ever had.
All this hurtin'.
I just hung my head an cried.

(Guitar solo)

Yes, it was a sad day with me.
So sad that day.

So sad, that day.
When my Lord, taken my baby away.

Well, well, well, I'll meet my baby.
On some old lonesome day.
