I-I-I am the, the backdoor man
I-I-I am, the backdoor man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand


When ev'rybody is-a tryin' to sleep
I'm-a somewhere makin' my midnight creep
An ev'ry mo'nin when the rooster crows
He's tellin' me that it's the time to go


I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand


(harmonica & instrumental)


Well, they took me to the doctor
Shot full of holes
The nurse she cried, 'Save his soul!'
I was 'cussed of murder in first degree
The judge wife cried, 'Let the man go free!'


I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand, mmm


(guitar & instrumental)


I was accussed a-murder in the first degree
The judge wife cried, 'Let the man go free!'
The cop's wife cried, 'Don't take him down
I'd-a rather be in six feet of ground!'


I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand


(piano & instrumental)


I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand


(bass & instrumental)


'Ooh!'


I am, the backdo' man
I am, the backdo' man
Well, the men don't know
But the little girls they understand


'Ooh!'


(instrumental all to end)


I am
I am
I-I-I am
The backdo' man.
