Peter, Paul & MaryBetty & Dupree

Chorus: Lie down Betty, see what tomorrow brings Lie down Betty, see what tomorrow brings May bring you sunshine, may bring you diamond rings, But if you lose your man it won't bring you anything. Well Betty told DuPree, "Buy me a diamond ring", yeah Betty told DuPree, "Buy me a diamond ring" And DuPree told Betty, "Buy you most anything" (Chorus) So DuPree took a pistol and he robbed that jewelry store, yeah I said DuPree took a 38, he robbed that jewelry store You know he killed two policemen he left them a-lying on the floor. Well DuPree in a taxi "Take me to Baltimore" DuPree in a taxi "Take me to Baltimore" And when he got to Betty's the sheriff was a-waitin at the door. You could hear him singin'... (Chorus) Now DuPree's in the death house callin' out Betty's name Oh, DuPree's in the death house callin' out Betty's name The guard said "DuPree this note from your baby just came." "I came to see you but they wouldn't let me see your face" "came to see you but they wouldn't let me see your face" "I love you DuPree, ain't no one gonna take your place!" (Chorus)
