Oh Lacey Belle, don't 'llow me to do nothin'
Nothin' but just lay up in the bed an read, now
A-Lacey Belle, don't 'llow me to do nothin', here
Nothin' but just lay up in the bed an read, now
She said Sonny Boy, what the oiuja warn about some other woman, yeah?'
Just so long as you got me, now?
Don't you know this Lacey Belle, she done quit me?
She done even throwed my trunk outdo', now
Lord, don't you know this Lacey Belle, done quit me, now?
She done even throw'ed my trunk outdo'
Now, she done got me to the place
Ya see, people I ain't even got change clo'

'Alright Blind John'

(harmonica & instrumental)

'That what I'm talkin' about, isn't it!'

Lord, my home ain't here, now
Lacey Belle, I live away out in the west
Lord, my home ain't here, now
Lacey Belle, I live way out in the west, now
I lives just the other side-a Smokey Mountain
And that's where the eagle build her nest

Oh Lacey, I bet the next woman that I get, here
Won't be trained to throw my trunk outdo'
Lord, I bet the next woman that I get, now
Blind John, she won't be trained to throw my trunk outdo's
Well now, she won't get me to the place
That I won't even have a change of clothes.
