Some Old Woman

(Tellin’ All Those Lies On Me)

Well there’s some old woman
And she’s livin’ right here in this here town
She keeps tellin’, tellin’ all them lies about me
Well it’s a sin and a shame
“Bout the way she’s been kickin’ my name around town
Tell me why does that woman keep tellin’ all them lies about me
Oh, she says that I’m wicked and wild
Oh-oh-oh, I’m as pure as a newborn child
Tell me why, yeah, why can’t ev’rybody see
She’s only lyin’, yeah, she’s tellin’ them lies about me

Well I’m gonna get the bailiff, have him come and go, and take her down
She don’t quit tellin’ them lies about me
Well there must be a law
“Bout the way she’s kickin’ my name around town
Tell me why does that woman
Keep tellin’ all them lies about me
Oh well I never done nothin’ to her
Oh well I never said nothin’ to her
Tell me why, yeah, why can’t ev’rybody see
She’s only lyin’, she’s tellin’ them lies about me

Well there’s some old woman
And she’s livin’ right here in this here town
She keeps tellin’, tellin’ all them lies about me
Well I wish to the Lord that I had never been born
She don’t quit tellin’ them lies about me
You know I lie awake nights, I’m just weepin’ and cryin’
‘Cause that old woman just won’t quit lyin’
Damned old gossip keeps signifyin’
Yellin’ all them dirty white lies about me
Tell me why does that woman
Keep tellin’ them lies about me
