Ragged & Dirty

1. Lord, I'm broke, I'm hungry, ragged and dirty too,

Broke and hungry, ragged and dirty too.

If I clean up, sweet momma, can I stay all night with you?

.

2. Lord, I went to my window, babe, I couldn't see through my blinds,

Went to my window, babe, I couldn't see through my blinds,

Heard my best friend a-comin' and I thought I heard my baby cry.

.

3. Lord, if I can't come in here, baby, then just let me sit down in your door,

If I can't come in here, baby, then just let me sit down in your door,

And I would leave so soon that your man won't never know.

.

4. How can I live here, baby, Lord, and feel at ease?

How can I live here, baby, Lord, and feel at ease?

Well, that woman I got, man, she does just what she feels.

.

5. Lord, you shouldn't mistreat me, baby, because I'm young and wild,

Shouldn't mistreat me, baby, because I'm young and wild.

You must always remember, baby, you was once a child.

.

6. 'Cause I'm leaving in the morning, if I have to ride the blinds,

Leaving in the morning, if I have to ride the blinds.

Well, I been mistreated and I swear I don't mind dyin'

.
