INTRO

Believe I'll take me a walk around the corner by myself
Believe I'll take me a walk around the corner by myself
And if I can't find my babe I don't want nobody else

She went out last night and she didn't even say goodbye
She went out last night and she didn't even say goodbye
How come she left me, Lord, I really don't know why

Now, I'm going out this morning, my forty-five in my hand
Now, I'm going out this morning, my forty-five in my hand
Now, I'm gonna kill my woman for loving another man

Then I'm going to the judge and I'm gonna fall down on my knee
Then I'm going to the judge and I'm gonna fall down on my knee
And ask him, "Please, kind judge, have mercy on me, please."

"Judge, I done killed my woman 'cause she treated me so unkind.
Judge, I done killed my woman 'cause she treated me so unkind.
Treated me so unkind, ‘till I swear I lost my mind."

"Well, it's please, please, please don't send me to the electric chair.
Now, and it's please, please, please don't send me to the electric chair.
Just give me my time and I'll try to do it anywhere."

When I'm dead and gone and six feet in the ground
When I'm dead and gone and six feet in the ground
You can only say there's a good man has gone down

And it looks mighty cloudy and I believe it's going to rain
Well it looks mighty cloudy and I believe it's going to rain
I just love to hear my baby call my name
