Johnny Cash - Transfusion Blues lyrics

Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds Took a transfusion and I shot my woman down Went right home and I went to bed I stuck that lovin' 44 beneath my head Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun Took a transfusion and away I run Made a good run but I run too slow They overtook me down in Juarez Mexico Late in the hot joints takin' the pills In walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill He said, "Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown You're the dirty hack that shot your woman down" Said, "Yes, oh yes my name is Willy Lee If you've got a warrant just a read it to me" Shot her down because she made me slow I thought I was her daddy but she had five more When I was arrested I was dressed in black Put me on a train and they took me back Had no friends for to go my bail They slapped my dried up carca** in that country jail Into the courtroom my trial began Where I was handled by twelve honest men Just before the jury started out I saw that little judge commenced to look about In about five minutes in walked the man Holding the verdict in his right hand Verdict read in the first degree I hollered, "Lowdy, Lowdy have a mercy on me" The judge he smiled as he picked up his been Ninety-nine years in the San Quentin pen Ninety-nine years underneath that ground I can't forget the day I shot my woman down Come on you guys and listen unto me Lay off that liquor and let that transfusion be
