Have mercy on me, baby
I'm Down upon my knees
Have mercy on me, baby
I'll do just as you please
I'll put no one else above you
Have mercy, baby, have mercy

Have mercy on me, baby
Please have a little heart
Have mercy on me, baby
You're tearin' me apart
The way that you do me
You know you done got to me
Have mercy on me, baby, have mercy

She's got you hypnotized
And your brain is paralyzed
You know she's only playin' with you
Like a puppet on a string
Remember just one thing
She can't love you like I do, no

Have mercy on me, baby
Please give this heart a break
Have mercy on me, baby
I'll do just what it takes
You know you won't regret it
So hey, there now, I said it
Have mercy on me, baby, have mercy

Have mercy
Have mercy on me
Have mercy on me, baby
Have mercy on me, baby
Please have mercy on me
Have mercy

    General CommentI don't really know why this song is in here... hmmm..... it's not a White Stripes song. It's a Loretta Lynn song, and Jack plays guitar on though. I don't think the White Stripes have covered it or anything. Anyways I love the song anyways, Loretta Lynn wrote it a long tiome back for Elvis Presley, but she never ended up giving it to him. Then she recorded it and you can hear it on her 2004 album Van Lear Rose (which Jack produced). Great song, it totally sounds Elvis-ish too.
