Jim Kweskin - Ella Speed lyrics

Traditional

Come on and take some heed
Be sworn by the death of Ella Speed
Come on and take some heed
Be sworn by the death of Ella Speed.

Now Ella Speed was downtown and she was having a lot of fun
And here's the deed Bill Martin done
Now Ella Speed was downtown and she was having a lot of fun
And here's the deed Bill Martin done.

The deed that old Bill Martin done
Was commit murder with a Colt 41
Oh, the deed that old Bill Martin done
Was commit murder with a Colt 41.

Oh, Bill Martin he was tall and slender
Better known as him being a bar tender
Oh, Bill Martin he was tall and slender
Better known as him being a bar tender, hey.

When w've been heard that Ella Speed was dead
Yeah, they were really red and red
When w've been heard that Ella Speed was dead
Yeah, they were really red and red.

Now Ella Speed was downtown and she was having a lot of fun
And here's the deed Bill Martin done
Now Ella Speed was downtown and she was having a lot of fun
And here's the deed Bill Martin done.
