Mistreated – Deep Purple

Time to go back to some hard core hard rock. A memorable performance of Ritchie Blackmore and David Coverdale, at the 1974 California Jam. Maybe the best Deep Purple lineup, with Glenn Huges, Jon Lord and Ian Paice.

Lyrics:

I’ve been mistreated, I’ve been abused.
I’ve been struck downhearted, baby, I’ve been confused
’cause I know, yes, I know I’ve been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I’ve been losing my mind, you know I have.

I’ve been lonely, I’ve been cold.
I’ve been looking for a woman to have and hold
’cause I know, yes, I know I’ve been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I’ve been losing, I’ve been losing,
I’ve been losing my mind, baby baby babe.

I’ve been mistreated, I’ve been abused.
I’ve been looking for a woman, yeh, I’ve been confused
’cause I know, yes, I know I’ve been mistreated, ooh o-o-oh.
Since my baby left me I’ve been losing, losing,
I’ve been losing my mind, baby baby babe.
Oh oh oh, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman.

I’ve been losing my mind.
