SOMEBODY HAVE MERCY (Sam Cooke) Sam Cooke Also recorded by: Boo Boo Davis; Ted Hawkins; Willie Hightower; Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson; Shirley Johnson; John Primer; Otis Rush; John "Broadway" Tucker. Somebody have mercy and tell me what is wrong with me Somebody have mercy and tell me what is wrong with me Sometimes I don't know how I stand the things this woman do to me Let me tell you When I think about how she do me, the tears fall down like rain, like rain When I think about how she do me, the tears fall down like rain, like rain When I think I've got her chained down, she starts actin' up again Oh let me tell you I'm goin' down to the bus station with a suitcase in my hand, yes I am I'm goin' down to the bus station with a suitcase in my hand, yes I am I'm gonna grab me an armful of greyhound and ride just as close I can Do that thing for me now (harmonica solo) Let me tell you one more time Somebody have mercy I wonder what is wrong with me, lord have mercy Somebody have mercy I wonder what is wrong with me, yeah Sometimes I don't know how I stand the things this woman do to me Do that one more time, my fellas I'm standin' here wonderin', baby, with a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes I am Standin', wonderin', baby, with a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes I am Oh I got a long way to get there and I got-a some time to go (scat singing, to fade)
