B.B. King Lyrics

Five Long Years Lyrics
(Eddie Boyd)

If you ever been mistreated, then you know just what I'm talkin' about
If you ever been mistreated, then you know just what I'm talkin' about
I worked five long years for one woman, and she had the nerve to put me out

I got a job at a steel mill, truckin' steel like a slave
I got a job at a steel mill, truckin' steel like a slave
For five long years every Friday, I went straight home with all of my pay

If you ever been mistreated, you know just what I'm talkin' about
If you ever been mistreated, you know just what I'm talkin' about
I worked five long years for a woman, and she had the nerve to put me out
