Title: Five Long Years

Have you ever been mistreated?
You know just what I'm talking about.
Have you ever been mistreated?
You know just what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for one woman,
She had the nerve to put me out.

I got a job in a steel mill, shucking steel like a slave.
Five long years, every Friday
I come straight back home with all my pay.
Have you ever been mistreated?
You know just what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for one woman,
She had the nerve to put me out.

I finally learned my lesson,
Should a long time ago.
The next woman that I marry,
She gonna work and bring me the dough.
Have you ever been mistreated?
You know just what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for one woman,
She had the nerve,
She had the nerve,
She had the nerve,
She had the nerve to put me out.

by Eddie Boyd
