I'm [C] tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
I'm [F] tore down, I'm almost level with the [C] ground. [lick]
Well, I [G] feel like this when my [F] baby can't be [C] found. [G]
I [C] went to the river [C] to jump in.
My [C] baby showed up and said, "I will tell you when."
Well, I'm [F] tore down, I'm almost level with the [C] ground. [lick]
Well, I [G] feel like this when my [F] baby can't be [C] found. [G]
I [C] love you babe with all my [C] heart and soul;
[C] Love like mine will [C] never grow old.
[C] Love you in the morning and in the [C] evening too.
[C] Every time you leave me I get mad with you.
Chorus
Twenty-four Bar Blues Solo
I [C] love you baby with [C] all my might;
[C] Love like mine is [C] out of sight.
I'll [C] lie for you if you [C] want me too.
I [C] really don't believe that your love is true.
Chorus
I'm [C] tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
Well, I'm [F] tore down, I'm almost level with the [C] ground. [lick]
Well, I [G] feel like this when my [F] baby can't be [C] found.
