    Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds
    I took a shot of cocaine and shot my woman down
    I went right home and I went to bed
    I stuck that lovin' forty-four beneath my head.

    Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun
    Took a shot of cocaine and away I run
    Made a good run but I run too slow
    They overtook me down in Juarez Mexico.

    Laid in the hot joint takin' the pill
    In walked a sheriff from Jericho Hill
    He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown
    You're the dirty hack that shot your woman down.

    I said yes sir my name is Willie Lee
    If you've got a warrant just read it to me
    Shot her down cause she made me slow
    I thought I was her daddy but she had five more.

    When I was arrested I was dressed in black
    They put me on a train and they took me back
    Had no friends for to go my bail
    They slapped my dried up carcass in the county jail.

    Early next morning about a half past nine
    I spied a sheriff comin' down the line
    Coughed and coughed as he cleared his throat
    He said come on you dirty hack into that district court

    Into the court room my trial began
    Where I was handled by twelve honest men
    Just before the jury started out
    I saw that little judge commence to look about.

    In about five minutes in walked a man
    Holding the verdict in his right hand
    The verdict read in the first degree
    I hollered Lordy Lordy have mercy on me

    The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen
    Ninety nine years in the Folsom pen
    Ninety nine years underneath that ground
    I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down
    Come on you gotta listen unto me
    Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be
