Know I love ya babe?
Know I love ya babe?
Know I love ya babe?
But you don’t even know my name
Let me tell ya baby
I’ll tell ya what I would do
I would rob, steal, kill somebody
Just ta get back home ta you
Ain’t that lovin’ ya, baby?
Ain’t that lovin’ ya, babe?
Ain’t that lovin’ ya, babe?
But you don’t even know my name
Let me tell ya baby
Don’t sound like it’s true

Jimmy Reed, Down in Mississippi.

They could drop me in the ocean
I’d swim to the bank
An’ crawl home ta you
Ain’t that lovin’ ya baby?
Ain’t that lovin’ ya babe?
Ain’t that lovin’ ya baby?
But you don’t even know my name
They may kill me baby, bury me like they do
My body might lie but my spirit gonna rise
And come home to you
Ain’t that lovin’ ya baby?
Ain’t that lovin’ ya babe?
Ain’t that lovin’ ya baby?
But you don’t even know my name
