  • Early in the mornin' I'm out of my bed
    Hangover ringing like a hammer in my head
    But I can't rest, no matter what I do
    'Cause I'm lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you

    Well I've been uptown, downtown too
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    East coast, west coas, Timbuktu
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Bayou
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    Just can't shake these lovesick blues
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you

    Thought about Melissa, and I thought about Sue
    Thought about Sissy but she meaner than you
    Couldn't imagine, Lana, Caroline or Rose will never do
    'Cause I'm lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you

    Well I've been uptown, downtown too
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    East coast, west coas, Timbuktu
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Bayou
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    Just can't shake these lovesick blues
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you

    Yeah, I've been uptown, downtown too
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    East coast, west coas, Timbuktu
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Bayou
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    Just can't shake these lovesick blues
    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you

    Lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    I'm lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you
    I'm lookin' for a woman, won't do me like you Writer/s: Steve Earle
