Broke Down Engine

1. Feel like a broke-down engine, ain't got no drivin' wheel,

Feel like a broke-down engine, ain't got no drivin' wheel.

You all been down and lonesome, you know just how a poor man feels.

.

2. Been shooting craps and gambling, momma, and I done got broke,

Been shooting craps and gambling, momma, and I done got broke,

I done pawned my pistol, baby, my best clothes been sold.

.

Lordy, Lord, Lordy, Lord, Lordy, Lord, Lordy, Lord,

Lordy, Lord.

.

3. I went down in my praying ground, fell on my bended knees,

I went down in my praying ground, fell on my bended knees,

I ain't cryin' for no religion, Lord, give me back my good gal please.

.

4. If you give me back my baby, I won't worry you no more,

Give me back my baby, I won't worry you no more,

Don't have to put her in my house, Lordy, just lead her to my door.

.

Lordy, Lord, Lordy, Lord, Lordy, Lord, Lordy, Lord,

Lordy, Lord.

.

5. Can't you hear me, baby, rappin' on your door?

Can't you hear me, baby, rappin' on your door?

Now you hear me tappin', tappin' across your floor.

.

6. Feel like a broke-down engine, ain't got no drive at all,

Feel like a broke-down engine, ain't got no drive at all.

What make me love my woman, she can really do the Georgia Crawl.

.

7. Feel like a broke-down engine, ain't got no whistle or bell,

Feel like a broke-down engine, ain't got no whistle or bell,

If you're a real hot momma, come take away Daddy's weeping spell.

.
