She took a likin' to me.
Said she loved me
But she didn't know the meaning of the word.
Me holdin' her hand and
Whisperin' sweet things and
Cooin' softly like a song bird.
With a tear in her eye and a
Sigh on her breath Lord she said
"Hon I'm heavy with child."
That I'm breakin'my back
Just tryin' to keep my head above water
And it's turnin' me wild."
Don't want your company.
You better leave this mornin' leave today
Take your love and your child away.
I'm thinkin' about all the things that I did
As a young man
Now that I'm old.
Did he have all the toys and the joys
That a young man should have
Before he gets too old?
Didn't want your company.
Shoulda left that mornin' left that day
Took your love and your child away.
