Mercy Mercy
Don Covay Lyrics


Have mercy, have mercy, baby
Have mercy, have mercy on me

Well, I went to see a gypsy and had my fortune read
She said, "Don, your baby's gonna leave you"
Her back is packed up under the bed and I cry

Have mercy, have mercy, baby, yeah
Have mercy, yeah, have mercy on me

I said, if you leave me baby, girl, if you put me down
Well, I'm a goin' to the nearest river, child
And jump from above to the ground but don't leave me

Have mercy, have mercy, baby
Mercy, yeah, have mercy, have mercy on me

Well, now hey hey baby, hey hey now, what you tryin' to do, huh?
Hey hey baby, hey hey now, please don't say we're through

I said, if you stay, baby, I tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna work two jobs seven days a week
And bring my money home to you

Well, I said mercy, mercy, mercy
Mercy, mercy, mercy

Her back is packed up under the bed
And I cry

I say, if you leave me baby
Girl if you put me down
Well I'm a goin' to the nearest river, child
And jump from above to the ground
Don't leave me

Jimi Hendrix played the guitar, and Mick was influenced by his singing style. And good song. There's no rock and soulful song like this.

I bought this when it was first released in 19mumble, and it still sounds as great today. Soul at its best.

@michael swanson You can't be a Hendrix anything if you can't hear his riffs on this song

Brian Buckley

@michael swanson you’re wrong. It was Hendrix. You are a poor authority. Try a new authority route.
