John Lee Hooker

"Serves Me Right to Suffer (Live)"

[Intro, Spoken]
I'd like to tell you the title of this number that I'm going to do, that I've written. It makes a lot of sense, it tells a tremendous story. The name of it is "Serves Me Right to Suffer, it Serves Me Right to Be Alone." So take a listen to it:

[Chorus]
It serves me right to suffer
Serves me right to be alone
It serves me right to suffer, suffer
Serves me right to be alone, be alone, be alone
Because the life I'm livin'
I'm livin' in memories gone by

[Spoken]
Now watch this:

[Verse 1]
Every time I see another woman
She makes me think of mine, think of mine
Mmm
She makes me think of mine, think of mine
And that's why, when I see another woman
Folks, I just can't, keep from cryin', keep from cryin'

[Chorus]
It serves me right to suffer
Serves me right to be alone
Mmm
Serves me right to be alone
Because I'm tryin' to live my life
In the days of memories gone by

[Spoken]
Now I want you to pick up on this. You know these lyrics are somethin' else. Let's dig this

[Verse 2]
My doctor put me on
Milk, cream, and alcohol, alcohol
My doctor wrote me a description
For milk, cream, and alcohol
My nerves are so bad
I couldn't rest, I couldn't sleep at all at night

[Bridge]
That's why he placed me on
Milk, cream, and alcohol
He placed me on
Milk, cream, and alcohol
To ease my nerves
I could lay down and rest at night

[Outro]
Mmm
Milk, cream, and alcohol
