An old Blues standard. The earliest version of this song that anyone can find was recorded by Tampa Red back around 1935, so he is generally credited as the composer, but the version most people remember is the soulful rendition by Elmore James with that sweet, sweet slide guitar for punctuation.


You said you was hurtin', almost lost your mind.
Now the man you love, he hurt you all the time,
But when things go wrong, go wrong with you,

It hurts me too.

You love him more, when you should love him less.
While I lick up behind him and take his mess,
But when things go wrong, go wrong with you,

It hurts me too.

He love another woman, yes and I love you,
But you love him and stick to him like glue.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you,

It hurts me too.

Now he better leave you, or you better put him down,
No I won't stand to see you pushed around,
But when things go wrong, go wrong with you,

It hurts me too.
