I Can't Be Satisfied

Lesson Menu

An instructional for a great Muddy Waters tune. The nice thing is that once you learn this tune, you'll understand a lot of the moves that Muddy would regularly use to try out other tunes. A Youtube friend requested this so thanks to gabrielofnazareth for the suggestion.

Well, I'm goin' away to leave
Won't be back no mo'
Goin' back down south, child
Don't you want to go

Woman, I'm troubled
I be all worried in mind
Well, baby, I just can't be satisfied
And I just can't keep from cryin'

Well, I feel like snappin'
A pistol in your face
I'm gonna let some graveyard
Lord, be her resting place

Woman, I'm troubled
I be all worried in mind
Well, baby, I can' t ever be satisfied
And I just can't keep from cryin'

Well, now all in my sleep
Hear my doorbell ring
Looking for my baby
I couldn't see not a doggone thing

Woman, I was troubled
I was all worried in mind
Well, honey, I could never be satisfied
And I just couldn't keep from cryin'

Well, I know my little old baby
She gonna jump and shout
That old train delayed me
Lord, and I come walking out

And I mean troubled
I be all worried in mind
Well, honey, ain't no way in the world for me to be satisfied
And I just can't keep from cryin'
