Skip James - Drunken Spree lyrics

Skip James Drunken Spree early version


I love my darlin' yes I do
I love her 'til the sea go dry
And if I thought she didn't love me
I'd take morphine and die

It was late last night when Willie come home
She made one rap on the door
"Is that you Willie? I'd like to know
Darlin' don't you rap no more"

The last good word I heard my mother say
Sonny come hold my hand/head
Oh me, oh my never let a dollar by

I pawned my watch an' I pawned my chain
I pawned my gold diamond ring
If that don't settle my drunken spree
Lord I'll never drink no more

You had me ??darn?? my ??? ???
An' all my dirty clothes
It was late last night when Willie come home
She made one rap on the door
"Is that you Willie? I'd like to know
Darlin' don't you rap no more"


I love my darlin' yes I do
I love her 'til the sea go dry
And if I thought she didn't love me
I'd take morphine and die
