I said oh oh, Bessie Smith why do you hang your head so
Low?
I would die in heaven just to meet your soul.
I said oh oh, Bessie Smith why do you hang your head so
Low?
I would die in heaven, I would die in heaven just to
Meet your...

Shot to the ego boy it's where this knife runs through,
Three wise men call Bessie down for a dual,
Shot to the ego boy it's where this knife runs through,
Three wise men call Bessie down for a dual.

I said oh oh, father lay me down,
Down on this sunken ground,

I said oh oh, father lay me down,
Down on this sunken ground.

But she's got a crucifix hidin' way down in this pit,
Oh
If you wish to call her out,
Call her with your bravest shout,

I said oh oh, father lay me down,
Down on this sunken ground,
I said oh oh, father lay me down,
Down on this sunken ground.

I said oh oh Bessie Smith why do you hang your head so
Low?
I would die in heaven, I would die in heaven, I would
Die in heaven just to meet your soul.
