John Lee Hooker - I'll Never Get Out Of These Blues Alive lyrics

Jimmy McGregor, hey, Jimmy, come here
Jimmy, you son of a gun
What 'cha been doin'? How long has it been?
Hell, seven years if it's been one

How's the preacher? How's Don, did he go back to school?
No kidding, I thought he was gay
Who me? Oh, I'm great, I'm a father you know
Yeah, two of 'em and one on the way

Oh well, she couldn't make it, she gets pretty tired
She started her last month today
I only came up for a couple of minutes
Believe me, I wish I could stay

Oh and yeah, while I think of it, do you remember?
Not for myself, for a friend
A girl that I brought here before I got married
A couple of times at the end

Whatshername? She hardly knew me
Now her name means something to me
I wonder if she ever got over me
Anyway, I should be flattered for yesterday
At least I mattered, where did it go?

Hey Jimmy, I tell you, we're two lucky guys
You've got everything that you've planned
And all things considered, I've done fairly well
I mean, God's honest truth, man
I love Ruth and whatshername?

I thought I knew her, whatshername?
What happened to her? I don't know why
I'll never forget whatshername?
