How Many More Years

Album: The Sun Records Collection (1951)
  • How many more years?
    Have I got to let you dog me around
    How many more years?
    Does I got to let you dog me around
    I'd soon rather be dead
    Sleeping six feet in the ground

    I'm gonna fall on my knees
    I'm gonna raise up my right hand
    I'm gonna fall on my knees
    I'm gonna raise up my right hand
    Said, I'd feel much better, darlin'
    If you'd just only understand

    I'm goin' upstairs
    I'm gonna bring back down my clothes
    I'm goin' upstairs
    I'm gonna bring back down my clothes, get them all
    If anybody ask about me
    Just tell 'em I walked out on Writer/s: CHESTER BURNETT
