I got a gal up the coun-try,
Adim7 E7
5 -6 6 5 -4 4 -3”
You know I sure do love.

Now if you see my woman,
Tell her I says hurry home 2x
I ain’t had no loving
Since my gal’s been gone

Where it ain’t no love,
Ain’t no getting along 2x
My gal treat me so mean and dirty,
Sometimes I don’t know right from wrong

Lord I lied down last night,
Tried to take my rest 2x
My mind started wandering
Like the wild geese in the west

Gonna buy me a bulldog,
Watch you while you sleep 2x
Just to keep these men
From making the ‘fore day creep

You gonna want my love,
Baby, some lonesome day 2x
Then it will be too late,
I’ll be gone too far away.
