Killing Floor Lyrics

I shoulda quit you, long time ago
I shoulda quit you, baby, long time ago
I shoulda quit you and went on to Mexico

If I had'a followed, my first mind
If I had'a followed, my first mind
I'da been gone, since my second time

I shoulda went on, when my friend come from Mexico at me
I shoulda went on, when my friend come from Mexico at me
But now I was foolin' with ya baby, I let ya put me on the killin' floor

God knows, I shoulda been gone
God knows, I shoulda been gone
And I wouldn't have been here, down on the killin' floor, yeah

I've always imagined that singer is awaiting execution on death row (the killing floor) through his involvement with this woman and regretting not going to Mexico. Either her behaviour has led him to murder her or she's incited him to murder her husband.
