From the recording Rising; From the Vault
I wrote this song around the same time that I wrote Baby Blue. This one is a little harder. This one is about my mom.

I woke up this morning and what did I find? My old man had changed his mind
I’m left in misery
Oh Lord, I can’t think but to cry
Oh, tell me why?
Tell me Lord, how long will I feel the pain? Tears roll down just like falling rain
I went home yesterday and what did I see?
He’d stolen my pocket book and
Lord, he’d taken my key
Just an ordinary man
You see them everyday
Go and throw their old lady’s hearts away
I went home this morning
With the rain coming down
I was looking for my lover
He was nowhere to be found
Well I guess that
I’m the only true love I’ll find
This love’s my peace of mind hey!
I woke up this morning and what did I find? My old man had wasted all my time!
I’m gonna go out looking
Gonna find me somebody new
Someone who treats me better
Better than you do!
