Grateful Dead

It's My Own Fault

Lyrics By: John Lee Hooker
Music By: John Lee Hooker

It's my own fault baby, treat me the way you want to do
It's my own fault baby, treat me the way you want to do
The time you was loving me little girl
That's the time I wouldn't be true to you

You could make your own paycheck, bring it on home to me
You could make your own paycheck, bring it on home to me
I'd go out on the west side baby
And make every pretty woman look at me

I'm begging you one last time baby, I'm on my bended knee
I'm begging you one last time baby, I'm on my bended knee
I'll do right woman, if you'll come home to me

It's my own fualt baby, treat me the way you want to do
It's my own fualt baby, treat me the way you want to do
The time you was loving me little girl
That's the time I wouldn't be true to you

This seems to have been performed only once, in December 1966, with an unknown guest vocalist.
