I-I-I am the, the backdoor man
I-I-I am, the backdoor man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand

When ev'rybody is-a tryin' to sleep
I'm-a somewhere makin' my midnight creep
An ev'ry mo'nin when the rooster crows
He's tellin' me that it's the time to go

I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand

(harmonica & instrumental)

Well, they took me to the doctor
Shot full of holes
The nurse she cried, 'Save his soul!'
I was 'cussed of murder in first degree
The judge wife cried, 'Let the man go free!'

I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand, mmm

(guitar & instrumental)

I was accussed a-murder in the first degree
The judge wife cried, 'Let the man go free!'
The cop's wife cried, 'Don't take him down
I'd-a rather be in six feet of ground!'

I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand

(piano & instrumental)

I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand

(bass & instrumental)

'Ooh!'

I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand

'Ooh!'

(instrumental all to end)

I am
I am
I-I-I am
The backdo' man.
