bad luck city lyrics – r.l. burnside

[spoken]
the name of the song is “bad luck city”
lord, a lotta people don’t know about that
’cause they have never been there
but i’ve been there, and i know
lotta times you love them women
and they don’t love you
but i have one, and i love the one i have
that’s why i tell her every morning, when i wake up
i sit down and tell her these words

[singing]
cause i love you, baby
cause i love you, baby
love you, promise[?], my old girl
love you, promise[?], my old girl

[spoken]
them women, you know
lotta times you have them women, they love you too
they’ll say the same thing back to you, you said to them

[singing]
no, i ain’t gonna leave you, baby
no, i ain’t gonna leave you, baby
love you, too, baby
love you, too, baby

[spoken]
but if there’s trouble, problems
when you love them women and they don’t love you
lotta times, i wanted to leave her a lotta times
i been through that problem
but they be so nice to you, you just set down and tell ’em

[singing]
no, i ain’t gonna leave you, baby
no, i ain’t gonna leave you, baby
love you, too, baby

[spoken]

when you love them women and they don’t love you

“i got to leave you”
i tell her these words, one more time

[singing]

[spoken]
lotta times she feels sorry, y’know?

i be done started back in the house to close the door
she’ll tell me the same words

[singing]
no, i ain’t gonna leave you, baby

[spoken]
by that time we got everything settled then
goin’ try to move on
but it’s a problem-
but it’s a problem-
but it’s a problem-
when you love them women and they don’t love you

[spoken]
i know a lotta people don’t know about bad luck city
’cause they’ve never been there
but i been there
and i know about it

[singing]
cause i love you, baby
cause i love you, baby
love you for myself, girl
