I feel so blue this evening
I'm evil as I can be
I feel so blue this evening
I'm evil as I can be
Well, I'm alone, need back my lover
And it's 'bout to make a wreck of me

I used to read her letters
But I just could not read her mind
Used to read her letters
But I just could not read her mind
Well, she had me thinkin' that she loved me
But she was leaving all the time

Since she went and left me
I drink, drink all the time
Since she went and left me
I drink, drink all the time
Well, I'm not drinkin' because I want it
I drinkin' to ease my evil mind

Sometime I get to drinkin'
And-a thinkin' to myself
I'd rather see her dead, buddy
Then to see her with somebody else

Sometime I get to drinkin', ooo-ooo
An thinkin' to myself
Yes, I'd rather see her dead
Then to see her with somebody else

If I find her I'm gonna beat her
I'm gon' kick and bite her, too
Gon' take my German Lugar
An shoot her through and through

If I find her I'm gonna beat her, woo-ooo
Gon' kick and bite her, too
Yes, I'm gon' take my German Lugar
An gonna shoot her through and through.
