There's a red house over yonder, that's wnere my baby stays.
Lord, there's a red house over yonder, Lord, that's where my baby stays.
I ain't been home to see my baby in ninety-nine and one half days.
Wait a minute, something's wrong here, the key won't unlock this door.
Wait a minute, something's wrong, Lord, have mercy, this key won't unlock
this door, something's goin' on here.
I have a bad bad feeling that my baby don't live here no more.
Well, I might as well a go back over yonder, way back up on the hill, that 's
something to do.
Lord, I might as well go back over yonder, way back yonder cross the hill .
'Cos if my baby don't love me no more I know her sister will.
