Have You Ever Been Mistreated

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the album Lightnin' and Co. (1964).

This song is a cover of "Five Long Years" by Eddie Boyd and Willie Dixon.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve to put me out

I got a job in a steel mill, shucking steel like a slave
Five long years, every Friday I come straight back home with all my pay
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve to put me out

I finally learned my lesson, should a long time ago
The next woman that I marry, she gonna work and bring me the dough
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve
She had the nerve
She had the nerve
She had the nerve to put me out
