  • I want all you people to listen to my song
    I want all you people to listen to my song
    Remember me after the days I'm gone


    "Mr. Johnson's Blues No. 2" lyrics:

    I want all you people to listen to my song
    I want all you people to listen to my song
    And remember these words I say after I'm dead and gone

    Worry will kill you quicker than anything you buy
    Worry will kill you quicker than anything you buy
    ‘Cause when you lose the one you love you feel like you want to die
    People, it's hard to keep the one you love so true

    It's hard to keep the one you love so true
    Something is sure to happen to one, God will take one away from you
    It's no need of worryin' and always cryin'
    It's no need of worryin' and always cryin'

    What's the use of living true when you always catch hell for tryin'?
    Just to think people, how love has caused me to wander and roam
    Has made me drink and gamble, and stay out all night long
    Sometimes I get so disgusted, I wish I had died when I was born

    People, please don't fall in love like me
    People, you don't realize what a fool you can be
    I give up this world for the one I love, yet she don't care for me Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
