Rollin' and Tumblin'

I rolled and I tumbled, I cried the whole night long

I rolled and I tumbled, I cried the whole night long

Woke up this mornin', I must have bet my money wrong

.

I got troubles so hard, I can't stand the strain

I got troubles so hard, I can't stand the strain

Some young lazy slut has charmed away my brains

.

The landscape is glowin', gleamin' in the golden light of day

The landscape is glowin', gleamin' in the golden light of day

I ain't holdin' nothin' back now, I ain't standin' in anybody's way

.

Well, I did all I know just to keep you off my mind

Well, I did all I know just to keep you off my mind

Well, I paid and I paid and my sufferin' heart is always on the line

.

Well, I get up in the dawn and I go down and lay in the shade

I get up in the dawn and I go down and lay in the shade

I ain't nobody's house boy, I ain't nobody's well trained maid

.

I'm flat out spent, this woman been drivin' me to tears

I'm flat out spent, this woman she been drivin' me to tears

This woman so crazy, I swear I ain't gonna touch another one for years

.

Well, the warm weather's comin' and the buds are on the vine

The warm weather's comin', the buds are on the vine

Ain't nothing more depressing than trying to satisfy this woman of mine

.

I got up this mornin', saw the rising sun return

Well, I got up this mornin', see the rising sun return

Sooner or later, you too shall burn

.

The night's filled with shadows, the years are filled with early doom

The night is filled with shadows, the years are filled with early doom

I've been conjuring up all these long dead souls from their crumblin' tombs

.

Let's forgive each other darlin', let's go down to the greenwood glen

Let's forgive each other darlin', let's go down to the greenwood glen

Let's put our heads together now, let's put all old matters to an end

.

Well, I rolled and I tumbled and I cried the whole night long

Ah, I rolled and I tumbled and I cried the whole night long

I woke up this morning, I think I must be traveling on
