Lord, if you've ever been mistreated
Then you got to, you got to know just what I'm talkin' about
Yes, have you ever been mistreated?
Then you got to, you got to know just what I'm talkin' about
Lord I work five long years for one woman,
And she had the, nerve, to kick me out
I got a job at a steel mill,
I'm shucking steel just like a slave
Five long years, every Friday y'all I went straight home yeah,
I went straight home
Mistreated
Then you got to,
You got to know just what I'm talkin' about
Lord I work five long years for one woman,
And she had the nerve, to kick me out
Lord but I finally learned a lesson,
I should have known long time ago
The next woman I marry, she gotta have two jobs,
And she gotta go out and work long and bring some dough home
Lord, said I been mistreated
And you got to, you got to know just what I'm talkin' about
Lord I work five long years for one woman,
And she had the nerve, to kick me out
Have you ever been mistreated?
Then you got to,
You got to know just what I'm talkin' about
Yes, have you ever been mistreated?
Then you got to,
You got to know just what I'm talking about?
Lord I work five long years for one woman,
And she had the nerve to kick me out
I got a job at a steel mill,
I'm shucking steel just like a slave
Five long years, every Friday yes y'all I went straight home,
I went straight home with all my pay
Yes, I've been mistreated
And you got to,
You got to know just what I'm talking about
Lord I work five long years for one woman,
And she had the nerve, to kick me out
Lord,
I finally learned a lesson,
I should have known a long time ago
The next woman I marry, she gotta have two jobs,
And she gotta go out and work and bringing home some dough
I've been mistreated,
And you, you know just what I'm talking about
I work five long years for one woman,
And she had the nerves to kick me out
