Future Blues (Willie Brown) Can't tell my future, Lordy, I can't tell my past Can't tell my future, Lordy, I can't tell my past Lord it seems like every minute, sure gonna be my last. Well the minutes seems like hours, and the hours seems like days, yeah, the minutes seems like hours, and the hours seems like days, And it seems like my woman ought'a stop her low down ways. Ah the woman I love now, she's five feet from the ground I say woman I love now Lordy, five feet from the ground And she's a tailor-made, and ain't no hand-me-down. Lord and I got a woman now lordy and she lightnin' when she-- lightnin' when she-- Now thats wild-- I got a woman and she's lightnin' when she smile Five feet and four inches and she's just good huggin' size. Oh I know you see that picture now Lordy, up on your mother's-- Up on your mother's-- Mother's shelf I know you see that picture now, up on your mother's shelf Well you know by that I'm gettin' tired of sleepin' by myself. And it's "T" for Texas, now and it's "T" for Tennessee, And it's "T" for Texas, oh, it's "T" for Tennessee, God bless that woman that put that thing on me.
