When ya see tears comin' from my eyes
Oh yes, oh yes people, yes I could cry
Oh I know you see those big tears come from my eyes
From the bottom of my heart, baby you know I can cry
You know my mother told me when I was a little boy
She said, 'Someday son, you will have the reason why'
You know why?
I lay awake at night because of love
Lord I have so much trouble
I lay awake, I lay awake at night because of trouble
Because of so much trouble
People I just can't, I just can't sleep no more
All the critters have come to keep me company
You know there's a lonesome wind blowin' around my door
