In the heat of the sun and the rising haze
Been working so hard now for three damn days
When I come home just to lay my head
My woman and some other man sleeping in my bed

So when the sun goes down tonight
And I still hear her cry
Don't tell me that it's alright
For I know my baby lies
Somewhere south of the city

Feeling so confused, I don't understand
Next thing I remember, a shovel in my hand
Went down to the river carving out of stone
Dig a hole about six foot deep, my baby ain't coming home

So when the sun goes down tonight
And I still hear her cry
Don't tell me that it's alright
For I know my baby lies
Somewhere south of the city

Somewhere south

[Gutiar solo]

So when the sun goes down tonight
And I still hear her cry
Don't tell me that it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
For I know my baby lies
Somewhere south of the city

Somewhere south of the city

So lord I'm begging
Don't cast me out
She comes to me at night
Calling me south of the city

Somewhere south of the city
South of the city
Somewhere south of the city
Oh oh oh
