lyrics

Whoa-oh-ooo whoa whoa, whoa –oh-o!
Whoa whoa oo whoa whoa!
Whoa oh ooo whoa whoa, whoa-oh-o!
Lord Have Mercy On me

Whoa oh ooo whoa whoa, whoa oh o
Whoa whoa oo whoa whoa
Whoa oh ooo whoa whoa, whoa oh o
Lord Have Mercy, Mercy on me

Got no family, got no home, Lord have mercy on me
Lone wolf howlin’ all alone, Lord have mercy, mercy on me
Big river risin can’t swim or float, Lord have mercy on me
Burned my bridges and pawned my boat, Lord have mercy, mercy on me

Whoa-oh-ooo whoa whoa, whoa –oh-o!
Whoa whoa oo whoa whoa!
Whoa oh ooo whoa whoa, whoa-oh-o!
Lord Have Mercy On me

Cold wind howling no shelter in sight, Lord have mercy on me
Lonesome tumbleweed shaking with fright, Lord have mercy, mercy on me
Drowned in darkness crave your light, Lord have mercy on me
I'm here shakin’ like a child in the night, Lord have mercy, mercy on me

Whoa-oh-ooo whoa whoa, whoa –oh-o!
Whoa whoa oo whoa whoa!
Whoa oh ooo whoa whoa, whoa-oh-o!
Lord Have Mercy On me
Mercy, oh oh oh, Mercy, oh oh oh mercy on my soul
Mercy, oh oh oh, Mercy, oh oh oh mercy on my soul

Whoa-oh-ooo whoa whoa, whoa –oh-o!
Whoa whoa oo whoa whoa!
Whoa oh ooo whoa whoa, whoa-oh-o!
Lord Have Mercy On me
