If Tha Blooz Don’t Kill Me

I’m excited about a batch of songs coming soon .. here’s a little sample ..

If Tha Blooz Don’t Kill Me

If tha blooz don’t kill me, I know that whiskey will,
Said if tha blooz don’t kill me, I know that whiskey will,
And if that whiskey don’t do me, that red-haired woman will

I got a red-haired woman treats me awful mean,
I got a red-haired woman treats me awful mean,
But that red-haired woman’s the prettiest gal I ever’d seen

I got all kinds of money, sometimes don’t know what to do,
I got all kinds of money, yeah, sometimes I just don’t know what to do,
I got all kinds of money, and I got all kinds of problems too

Well if tha blooz don’t kill me, I know that whiskey will,
Said if tha blooz don’t kill me, I know that whiskey will,
And if that whiskey don’t do me, that red-haired woman will

Well I went out last Wednesday, ramblin’ round the town
Said I went out last Wednesday, ramblin’ around tha town,
I’m still just gettin’ started as the Tuesday sun go down

I went North and South, looked to the East and the West,
I went North then South, traveled to the East and to the West,
I’m lookin’ for that red-haired woman, the gal I love the best

Well my wife done left me, children don’t say my name,
I said my poor wife done left, lost children don’t say my name,
That old hound dog still barkin’, I guess he must feel the same

They used to say, “Joe Eddie, why you goin’ downtown?”
They’d say, “Now Daddy, why you gotta go downtown?”
The only answer I can give ’em, “I’m lookin’ through the lost and found”

Well if tha blooz don’t kill me, I know that whiskey will,
Said if tha blooz don’t kill me, I know that whiskey will,
And if that White Lightnin’ don’t do me, you know that red-haired woman will
