It's Hard to Be Mistreated

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album Complete Recorded Works In Chronological Order 1935-1941, Volume 2 (1991).

Well it's hard to be mistreated, when you ain't done nothing wrong
Well it's hard to be mistreated, when you ain't done nothing wrong
And you caught your lover‑man, when you can't keep him at home

Now I'm going to get myself a single man, and leave these married mens alone
Now I'm going to get myself a single man, and leave these married mens alone
They ain't nothing but a wad of trouble, when they laying up in your arms

I need someone to love me, but someone to call my own
I need someone to love me, but someone to call my own
I'm tired of loving these married men, can say I know their wives got them and gone

Well I'm getting so tired, staying home all by myself
Well I'm getting so tired, staying home all by myself
And every man I fall in love with, he loving someone else

But I tried to be nice, tried to be nice and kind
But I tried to be nice, tried to be nice and kind
But every man I love, don't seem like he want to pay me no mind
