Three Women

Album: Lazaretto (2014)
  • Yeah, I got three women
    Red, blonde hair, and brunette
    I got three women
    Red, blonde, and brunette
    It took a digital photograph to pick which one I like

    Well, I'm lonely at night, but I stay up until the break of day
    Yeah, I'm lonely at night, but I stay up until the break of day
    How come I gotta have a woman to blur these bruise away
    Yeah, alright, I said

    Lawdy lord, lawdy lord, lawdy lord
    Lawdy lord, lawdy lord, lawdy lord
    Lawdy, lawdy, lawdy, lord

    Yeah, I got one in California and one back in Detroit
    I got one in California and one back in Detroit
    I brought my woman to Nashville, cast a bottle with her daddy all night

    Yeah, well, she hogged my ashes, but she took them too far away
    Yeah, she hogged my ashes, but she took them too far away
    She said she loves her daddy
    But only when she got bills to pay
    Aw, listen, all right

    Lawdy lord, lawdy lord, lawdy lord
    Lawdy lord, lawdy lord, lawdy lord
    Lawdy, lawdy, lawdy, lord

    Yeah, yeah
    Well, I wish I could tell you just what my three women do
    Yeah, I wish I could tell you just what my three women do
    But if I open my mouth, well, that'll be three women I lose

    Yeah, now I know what you're thinking
    What gives me the right?
    Yeah, I know what you're thinking
    What gives you the right?

    Well, these women must be getting something
    Cause they come and see me every night

    Lawdy lord, lawdy lord, lawdy lord
    Lawdy lord, lawdy lord, lawdy lord
    Lawdy, lawdy, lawdy, lord
