Rollin' and Tumblin' Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've 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
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
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 nothin' so depressin'
As tryin' to satisfy this woman of mine

I got up this mornin'
Saw the risin' sun return
Well, I got up this mornin'
Seen the risin' sun return
Sooner or later
You too shall burn

Well, 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 conjurin' 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

And 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 mornin'
I think, I must be travelin' wrong

MCKINLEY MORGANFIELD, MUDDY WATERS
