Serves Me Right to Suffer-John Lee Hooker-From Seattle TV 1950’s

Lyrics

It serves me right to suffer
Serves me right to be alone
It serves me right to suffer, suffer
Serves me right to be alone, alone
Because the life I’m living
I’m living in memories gone by

Now watch this now

Every time I see another woman
She makes me think of mine,
Think of mine
She makes me think of mine,
Think of mine
And that’s why when I see another woman
Folks, I just can’t keep from trying,
Keep from trying

It serves me right to suffer
Serves me right to be alone
Serves me right to be alone
Because I’m trying to live my life
The days of memories gone by

Now I want you to pick upon this
These lyrics is something else
Let’s dig this

My doctor put me on
Milk, cream, and alcohol, alcohol
My doctor wrote me a prescription
For milk, cream and alcohol
My nerve was so bad
I couldn’t rest
I couldn’t sleep all at the night
And that’s why he placed me on
Milk, cream, and alcohol
He placed me on
Milk, cream and alcohol
Even now
I can’t lay down and rest at night
Milk, cream, and alcohol

Songwriters
JOHN LEE HOOKER
