Oh, the woman I believed in
Turned up to be deceivin'
She almost beaten my poor old heart to death
Yes, she left my heart forsaken
And every rule she's breakin'
Every word she said was spoke with a lyin' breath.

Throw me in a den full of great big lions
Or take me to the hangin' tree
But please don't let that woman get me
Tie me up on the railroad track
Or drown me in the deepest sea
But please don't let that woman get me.

--- Instrumental ---

If I hear that woman a callin'
And I feel my heart a fallin'
I think I'll make me a bomb and light the fuse
If I ever see her a comin'
I'm a gonna take off a runnin'
If I'll slow down it'll be just to cool my shoes.

Well, throw me in a den full of great big lions
Or take me to the hangin' tree
But please don't let that woman get me
Tie me up on the railroad track
Or drown me in the deepest sea
But please don't let that woman get me.

Well, I said, please don't let that woman get me
