Bring Me Water When you Come to Bed. (Paola’s Blues)

All this work has got me down, she said.

This child of yours is weighin’ me down, she said.

Oh, I’m so worked and heavy I could faint.

I’m doin this for love, but quick it ain’t.

I’m tired and I’m goin to rest, she said.

I’m tired and I’m goin to rest, she said,

Oh, bring me water, when you come to bed.

I’m so tired, and I’m thirsty again.

My mom and dad are far away, she said.

My sisters are all away from me, she said.

oh, I’m so far and lonely my heart aches,

I’m finished with this town and this here lake.

I’m tired and I’m goin to rest, she said.

I’m tired and I’m goin to rest, she said,

Oh, bring me water, when you come to bed.

I’m so tired, and I’m thirsty again.

This city never had me fooled, she said.

The summer heat’s the only thing I’d keep.

But now its fall, and all the leaves are red,

I’m tellin’ you, I ain’t takin winter again.

I’m tired and I’m goin to rest, she said.

I’m tired and I’m goin to rest, she said,

Oh, bring me water, when you come to bed.

I’m so thirsty, and I’m lonely again.
