Cocaine Blues Lyrics

It was late last night I made my rounds I met my woman and I blowed her down I went on home and I went to bed I laid my pistol up under my head Early next morning by the rising sun I woke up and I started to run I made a run, but I run too slow - a man overtook me down in Jericho I was standing on the corner reading my dady's will On comming man they called him Bad Texas Bill He said: "Uh, Captain is your name Lee Brown I believed that you the rifle that blowed your woman down" I said: "Yes Sir Captain, My name is Lee And if you got any blues, boys sing em to me" Well I quess Lee that you know the best, You 'd better come go with me The judge will tell you the rest I was arrested, I was dressed in black put me on a train and they brought me back Jury found me quilty In the first degree And than laid me down in the penitentiary Yes the judge found me quilty and the jury too I cried "Lord in heaven - have some mercy on me!" I'll be here for the rest of my live All I've done was kill my wife
