Billie Holiday – Riffin' The Scotch lyrics

Johnny Mercer / D. Mcdonough / Benny Goodman / Buck

I jumped out of the tryin' pan
And right into the fire
When I lost me a cheatin' man
And got a no-count liar
Swapped the old one for a new one
Now the new one's breakin' my heart
I jumped out of the tryin' pan
And right into the fire
Lord, right into the fire
