Before You Accuse Me


by Ellas McDaniel aka Bo Diddley

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I’ve been spending my money on other women
You’ve been taking money from someone else

I called your mama ‘bout three or four nights ago
I called your mama ‘bout three or four nights ago
Well your mother said “Son”
“Don’t call my daughter no more”

Chorus

Come back home baby, try my love one more time
Come back home baby, try my love one more time
If I don’t go on and quit you
I’m gonna lose my mind

Chorus
