You Lead Me to the Wrong

print

Lord lordy me, and it’s lord lordy my
Oh honey you lead me to the wrong

Some people born with silver and gold
Others have husbands and wifes
I never had a thing in this whole wide wicked world
Now I’m losing my life
Now I’m losing my life

You promised me that we would be wed
On this I’d lay my money down
You were seen courtin my best freind
You caused me to shoot him down
You caused me to shoot him down

Well love of a woman is bitter but sweet
Even though she turns him down
The price I have to pay may come to you someday
And you’ll in the sea of sorrow drown
And you’ll in the sea of sorrow drown

Well they say I have a rightto my very last few words
Before they let the scaffold down
A man has to fight for what he thinks is right
Even if it puts him in the ground
Even if it puts him in the ground
Now it’s gonna put me in the ground

Lord Lordy me, and it’s Lord Lordy my
Oh honey you lead me to the wrong
