You is just a desperated woman
My baby ain't no earthly good
You are just a desperated woman
My baby ain't no earthly good
I don't need no tellin
I found it out in her neighborhood now

Now my baby killed her daddy
An shot her dear old brother, too
She say, was just a funny actin', old man
Old man, didn't know exactly how to do

An she just a desperated woman, now
My baby ain't no earthly good
Now an I don't need no tellin then
I found it out in her neighborhood, now

Now an for killin' her daddy
My baby even didn't get no time
She winked her eye at the judge
The judge didn't even charge her a single dime

She's just a desperated woman, yeah
My baby ain't no earthly good
I don't need no tellin, yeah
I found it out in her neighborhood

'Now take it John'

(piano & instrumental)

I had a good right a-sellin' whiskey
An I sit down and told my baby, so
An she wasn't satisfied until
She let the chief police know

An she's just a desperated woman, yeah
My baby ain't no earthly good
Now an I don't need no tellin, no
I found it out in her neighborhood, now.

~
