CraigS Lyr Add: Your Funeral and My Trial (Williamson) (2) Lyr Add: YOUR FUNERAL AND MY TRIAL (Williamson) 20 Oct 03


Another blues for the database. As a teenager I once bumped into Mr Williamson in Soho, thought he was trying to hustle me, and ran a mile rapidly! Later I was told that was "just his way".


YOUR FUNERAL AND MY TRIAL - Sonny Boy Williamson II (Rice Miller)

Please come home to your daddy, and explain yourself to me
Because I and you is man and wife, tryin' to start a family
I'm beggin' you baby, cut out that off the wall jive
If you can't treat me no better,
It got to be your funeral and my trial

When I and you first got together, 't was on one Friday night
We spent two lovely hours together, and the world knows alright
I'm just beggin' you baby, please cut out that off the wall jive
You know you got to treat me better,
If you don't it got to be your funeral and my trial

Alright

The good Lord made the world and everything was in it
The way my baby love is some solid sentiment
She can love to heal the sick and she can love to raise the dead
You might think I'm jokin' but you better believe what I say
I'm beggin' you baby, cut out that off the wall jive
Yeah, you got to treat me better,
Or it got to be your funeral and my trial
