This song is by Bessie Smith and appears on the compilation album Nobody's Blues But Mine (1972). Lord I wish I could die, 'cause my man treats me like a slaveLord I wish I could die, my man treats me like a slaveAs to why he drives me, I'm sinkin' low, Lord, in my grave. He's a hard drivin' papa, drives me all the timeDrives me so hard, I'm 'fraid I'll lose my mindAnd when the sun starts sinkin', I start sinkin' into crime.

She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and was a major influence on fellow blues singers, as well as jazz vocalists.
