Get Up Early In The Morning

Transcribed from 7/11/95 Columbia, MO
I woke up early, early this mornin'
'Cause I can't sleep at night
All on account of you darlin'
Why you won't act right?
(this verse appears to be from Arleen)
I wouldn't have my TV
Said it was cause I got no 'lectricity
I said no! It seems I got a little lightnin'
Comin' thru the roof, tonight!
Right at Andy time.
Sometimes I get so disgusted
Hear (heed?) these words I say:
Blues, pain, misery, heartache
Why you act that way?
Some time I feel that I'm
So close to you
Other times I feelin' nothin
(couldn't make out next line... JB ramble away from mic)
(these two verses are from Junco Partner)
I know a little Junco
Loaded as he could be
Oh, found him all drunk and nasty
Wobblin' on down the street
You know when the boy was rich... money
He had friends all over town
Now he's smelly and broke
Not a friend can be found
