Betty & Dupree Lyrics

Chorus:
Lie down Betty, see what tomorrow brings
Lie down Betty, see what tomorrow brings
May bring you sunshine, may bring you diamond rings,
But if you lose your man it won't bring you anything.

Well Betty told DuPree, "Buy me a diamond ring", yeah
Betty told DuPree, "Buy me a diamond ring"
And DuPree told Betty, "Buy you most anything"

(Chorus)

So DuPree took a pistol and he robbed that jewelry
store, yeah
I said DuPree took a 38, he robbed that jewelry store
You know he killed two policemen he left them a-lying
on the floor.

Well DuPree in a taxi "Take me to Baltimore"
DuPree in a taxi "Take me to Baltimore"
And when he got to Betty's the sheriff was a-waitin at
the door.

You could hear him singin'... (Chorus)

Now DuPree's in the death house callin' out Betty's
name
Oh, DuPree's in the death house callin' out Betty's
name
The guard said "DuPree this note from your baby just
came."

"I came to see you but they wouldn't let me see your
face"
"came to see you but they wouldn't let me see your
face"
"I love you DuPree, ain't no one gonna take your
place!"

(Chorus)
