Poor Kelly Blues Lyrics

Poor Kelly Blues - Big Maceo

I went up on the mountain

 

To see what poor Kelly done

 

He killed his woman

And didn't even 'tempt to run

 

Up on the mountain

 

Just to see what poor Kelly done

 

Well he killed his woman

 

And he didn't even 'tempt to run

 

When I found poor Kelly

He was standing in the do'

 

With a 32 20

 

And a forty-fo'

 

When I found poor Kelly

 

He was standin' in the do'

 

With a 32 20

 

And a hard-hitting forty-fo'

 

I ask him was he sorry

He said 'Nobody know'

 

'Just can't stand the way she was

 

Treatin' me any mo'

 

'Just couldn't stand

 

Way she was doin' me any mo'

 

She's a dirty mistreater

 

She won't jive me no mo'

 

He said 'I know I love her

 

Better than I did myself

 

She misused me

 

For somebody else'

 

'She know I loved her

 

Better than I did myself

 

Still she tried to misuse me

 

For somebody else'

 

'I know they gonna get me'

He said 'But I know I don't care'

 

They may even send me

 

To the 'lectric chair'

 

'I know they gonna get me

 

But baby I don't care'

 

There is one consolation

 

 

They won't leave my woman here
