When I Been Drinkin' Lyrics
(Big Bill Broonzy)

I don't need no money, I've got lucky oil on my hands
I don't need no woman's voice, always raisin' sand
When I been drinkin', yes, when I been drinkin'
Now when I come home, baby, please let me lay down and rest

Lookin' for a woman that ain't never been kissed
We can get along and I won't have to use my fist
When I been drinkin', yes, when I been drinkin'
Now when I come home, baby, please let me lay down and rest

I want a job to go to work at twelve, get off at one
Have an hour for dinner, boys, and my day's work is done
When I been drinkin', yes, when I been drinkin'
Now when I come home, baby, please let me lay down and rest

I want to be taken out of bed, put in a rocking chair
Rock me anywhere, baby, Big Bill won't care
When I been drinkin', yes, when I been drinkin'
Now when I come home, baby, please let me lay down and rest
