I Heard Somebody Calling

Mississippi Fred McDowell

Open E

Lord, I heard somebody

Keeps on callin’ me

Lord, I heard

Lord, I heard

Yes somebody, keeps on callin’

Callin’ me

Lord, I’m worried

Baby, don’t you wonder

Lord, I heard it

Lord, I heard it

Yeah, somebody

Keeps on call


I got a gal in Cuba

I got, three are in Spain

Gal in Cuba

Lord, I got

Three are in Spain

Lord, woman in Memphis

Scared to call

Woman in Memphis, Lord

Lord, I’m scared

Scared to call her name

Lord, Lord

Lord, Lord


I got the meanest woman

Lord, that you ever seen

Meanest woman

Lord, I have ever seen

Ask for whiskey

Give me gas, gasoline

Ask for whiskey, and give me


Lord, that the mean, meanest woman

Lord, I ever

Ever seen, Lord.
