Before You Accuse Me

Before You Accuse Me
(Ellas Otha Bates McDaniels, a.k.a. Bo Diddley)

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself. (2x)
You say I'm spending my money on other women.
You're takin' money from someone else.

Called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago. (2x)
Well, your mama said, "Son, don't call my daughter no mo'."

(Repeat 1st  verse.)

Come on back home, baby. Try my love one more time. (2x)
You know if things don't go to suit you, I think I'll lose my mind.

(Repeat 1st  verse.)

As sung by Eric Clapton on "Journeyman," 1989, and "Unplugged," 1992.
