Send Cocaine Blues Ringtone to your Cell

Early one mornin' while making the rounds
I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down
Went right home and I went to bed
I stuck that lovin' .44 beneath my head

Got up next morning and I grabbed my gun
I took a shot of cocaine and away I run
Made a good run but I run too slow
They overtook me down in Juarez Mexico

I laid in the hot joint, takin' the pill
In walked the Sheriff from Jericho Hill
He said, '€œWillie Lee, your name is not Jack Brown
You're the dirty hack that shot your woman down'€

Yes, oh yes, my name is Willie Lee
If you've got a warrant just read it to me
I shot her down 'cause she made me slow
I thought I was her daddy but she had five more

When I was arrested, I was dressed in black
They put me on a train and they took me back
I had no friend for to go my bail
They slapped my doddered carca*s in that county jail

The next morning 'bout a half past nine
I spied a Sheriff comin' down the line
He kind of coughed as he cleared his throat
He said, '€œCome on you dirty hack, to the district court'€

I entered the courtroom and my trial began
Where I was held by twelve honest men
Just before the jury started out
I saw that dirty judge commence to look about

In about five minutes, in walked a man
Holding the verdict in his right hand
The verdict read '€œIn the first degree"
I hollered, "Lordy, Lordy, have mercy on me'€

The judge smiled as he picked up his pen
'€œNinety-nine years in the Folsom State Pen'€
Ninety-nine years underneath that ground
I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down

Come on you've gotta listen up to me
'€œLay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be'€
