LYRIC

Betty And Dupree

Betty told Dupree, “Buy me a diamond ring”
Betty told Dupree, “Buy me a diamond ring”
DuPree told Betty, “Baby, buy you most any thing”
He said, “Lie down, Betty, see what tomorrow brings
Lie down, Betty, see what tomorrow brings
May bring the sun and it may bring your diamond ring”

Well then Dupree took a pistol
And he robbed the jew’lry store
Dupree took a pistol
Robbed the jew’lry store
To get away he had to
Kill two policemen and wound five more

Well then the judge told DuPree
“Buddy, gonna hang by your neck until you’re dead
Can’t you hear me talkin’ to you, buddy”
Judge told DuPree, “Hang by your neck until you’re dead
In the mornin’ time”
Oh well Miss Betty came to prison, Lord,
And these are the words that she said
To her lover Dupree she said

“I came to see you but they wouldn’t let me see your face
Oh, no, no, no,” She said
“I came to see you but they wouldn’t let me see your face
Oh, no, no, no,” She said
“I love my Dupree but I just can’t take his place

He said, “Lie down, Betty, lie down, Betty
See what tomorrow brings
Bring, bring early in the mornin’ comin’ down
And lie down, Betty, won’t you see what to, see what tomorrow brings
Oh well it may bring the sun
And it may bring your diamond ring”

Betty told Dupree, “Buy me a diamond ring”
Betty told Dupree, “Buy me a diamond ring”
Dupree told Betty, “Baby, buy you most any thing”

He said, “Lie down, Betty, lie down, Betty
See what tomorrow brings
Bring, bring early in the mornin’ comin’ down
And lie down, Betty, won’t you see what to, see what tomorrow brings
Oh well it may bring the sun
And it may bring your diamond ring”

He said, “Lie down, see what tomorrow brings
Oh can’t you hear me talkin’ to you, Betty
Oh oh-oh, oh oh-oh, oh oh-oh, oh oh-oh
See what tomorrow brings
Oh well it may bring the sun
And it may bring your diamond ring”

He said, “Lie down, Betty, lie down, Betty
See what tomorrow brings
Oh can’t you hear me talkin’ to you, Betty
Lie down, Betty, won’t you lie down, Betty, won’t you
See what to, see what tomorrow brings
Comin’ in the early mornin’, well it
May bring the sun and it may bring your diamond ring”
