"Five Long Years" as written by and Eddie H. Boyd....
If you've ever been mistreated, you know what I'm talkin' about
If you ever been mistreated, you know what I'm talkin' about
I worked five long years for one woman and the she had the nerve to put me out

Got a job in a steel mill, shuckin' steel like a slave
Five long years, ev'ry Friday, I went straight home with my pay

I've been mistreated, ah, you know what I'm talkin' about
I worked five long years on one woman, now she has the nerve to put me out

I finally learned a lesson a long, long time ago
Next woman I marry she's gotta, work an' bring me some dough
'Cause I've, I've been mistreated, you know what I'm talkin' about
I worked five long years for one woman, now she got the nerve to put me out
