Evil-Hearted Man

Words & Music:

Traditional Blues


Em       E                      Em    E

When the sun rose this morning, I was feeling mighty bad.

Em E                           E7

My baby said; "Good morning."  Hell, it made me mad!



              A7                 E

Because I was evil, evil hearted me.

         B7              A7                E    A7    E    B7

I'm just downright evil, evil as a man can be.


Well, she even cooked my breakfast, and she brought it to my bed,

I took a sip of coffee, and throwed cup at her head.




I don't even care if my baby leaves me flat

I got forty-eleven others if it comes to that




I donÕt even care if it rains from now on.

And the gal I love had never been born.




IÕve sold out to the devil, troubleÕs all I crave.

IÕd like to see you dead and lying in your grave.
