Why Do You Hurt Me?

by Desmond Allen



Blues song about bad love


I came home last night Looking for a fight
I came home last night you were no were in sight
Why do you always leave When I’m feeling tight?

Why do you hurt me baby? Keep me singing this song?
Why do you hurt me baby? You’ve been gone too long.
Keep me up all night, By the telephone; singing the Blues.

Thought you’d be home by morning. Why do you do me wrong?
Thought you’d be home by morning; I waited all night long.
Staring out the window, Singing my song.

Why do you tease me baby, And keep me hanging on?
Night after night, You go out to play.
If you don’t want my love, Go on and move away?
