Please let me lay down, darling
Let me lay down in yo cool iron bed
Well, let me lay down, baby
Let me lay down in yo' cool wrought iron bed
Lord, I been drinkin' white lightnin'
It's-a done gone to my head

Well, I been drinkin' white lightnin', darling
It done gone to my head
Well, I be'lieve to my soul
Yeah, the whiskey bottle 'on kill me dead
Lord, I be'lieve to my soul, baby
This a-whiskey gonna kill me

Lord, I ain't got nobody, baby
Hold my worry
Lord, I ain't got nobody
Baby, to hold my worried head
I want you tell me
Baby, what have I done wrong?

Tell me, baby
Honey, what have I done wrong?

Lord, bring me a Christmas present, darling
Baby, I'm in ja-ail, again
Lord, bring me a Christmas present, baby
Baby, I'm in jail again.
