What's The Matter

Written By: Joseph Hood

I went down to see my baby
just wanting to get some love
she just looked at me, she said,
what's the matter with you boy?
it's not you,
it's not you
it's not you I am thinking of

I went down to see my mother
just wanting to see a smile
she just looked at me, she said
what's the matter with you boy?
you ain't been here,
you ain't been here,
you ain't been here in quiet a while

What's the matter with you
what's the matter with you
your not doing, your not doing
your not doing what you ought to do

I went down, to the station this morning
just looking for my car
the police officer down there said
what's the matter with you boy?
you can't have it,
you will only patronize the bar

I went down
to the bank this morning
trying to get a loan
the teller down there said
What's the matter with you boy?
we already gave you one, and you lost it
that is what happened to your home

What the matter with you?
What's the matter with you?
Your not doing, your not doing,
your not doing what you ought to do.

I went down, to the river this morning,
though about jumping in,
the good lord said to me, he said
what's the matter with you boy?
theres always, theres always
theres always somewhere else you should have been.

What's the matter with you?
What's the matter with you?
your not doing, your not doing,
your not doing what you ought, to, do.
