Work Me, Lord Lyrics

by Janis Joplin

Work me Lord, work me Lord, please don't you leave me
I feel so useless down here with no one to love
Though I've looked everywhere
And I can't find me anybody to love, to feel my care

So ah work me Lord, use me Lord
Don't you know how hard it is trying to live all alone
Every day I keep trying to move forward
But something is driving me, oh, back
Honey, something's trying to hold on to me, to my way of life

So don't You forget me down here, Lord, no, no, no
Ah, ah, don't you forget me, Lord
Well I don't think I'm any very special
Kind of person down here, I know better
But I don't think you're gonna find anybody, not anybody
Who could say that they tried like I tried
The worst you can say all about me is that I'm never satisfied

Use me Lord
Please, honey, don't you leave me, I feel so useless down here
I can't find me anybody to love me and I've looked around
I've looked everywhere, everywhere
And I can't find me anyone to love, to feel my care

So honey don't you go and leave me, Lord, no, no, no
Honey, don't you go off and leave me, Lord
Can't I show you how hard it is
Trying to live when you're all alone
Every day I keep pushing, keep trying to move forward
But something is driving me, oh back
And something's trying to hold on to me
To my way of life, why?

Oh please, please, oh don't you go and
Forget me down here, don't forget me, Lord
I think that maybe you can ease me
Maybe I can help you, said uh whoa

Oh please, please, oh don't you go and leave me Lord
No, no, no, oh, please, hmm please, don't you leave me, Lord
