Songtext “Send me to the ‘Lectric Chair”:

Judge, your honor, hear my plea,
Before you open up your court.
But I don’t want no sympathy,
Cause I done cut my good man’s throat.
I caught him with a trifling Jane
I warned him about before.
I had my knife and went insane
And the rest you ought to know.

Judge, judge, please, mister judge,
Send me to the ‘lectric chair.
Judge, judge, good mister judge,
Let me go away from here.
I want to take a journey to the devil down below.
I done killed my man, I want to reap just what I sow.
Oh judge, judge, lordy, lordy, judge,
Send me to the ‘lectric chair.
Judge, judge, hear me judge,
Send me to the ‘lectric chair.

Judge, judge, send me there, judge,
I love him so dear.
I cut him with my barlow,
I kicked him in the side,
I stood here laughing o’er him,
While he wallowed around and died.
Oh judge, judge, lordy judge,
Send me to the ‘lectric chair.

Judge, judge, sweet mister judge,
Send me to the ‘lectric chair.
Judge, judge, good kind judge,
Burn me, cause I don’t care.
I don’t want no one good mayor to go my bail,
I don’t want to spend no ninety-nine years in jail.
So judge, judge, good kind judge,
Send me to the ‘lectric chair.
