lyrics

Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

I saw my baby (Oh Lord) with another man (Oh Lord)
I felt the fire (Oh Lord) within my hand (Oh Lord)
I told my baby (Oh Lord) before the dawn (Oh Lord0
‘Girl, you won’t see me (Oh Lord) after the storm’

I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned

They found her body (Oh Lord) rolled in the tide (Oh Lord)
Someone had seen me (Oh Lord) there by her side (Oh Lord)
They took my freedom (Oh Lord) now I’m in chains (Oh Lord)
Now I won’t see freedom (Oh Lord) ever again

I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned

Now I’m in Angola (Oh Lord) fire all around (Oh Lord)
There ain’t no water (Oh Lord) to cool me down (Oh Lord)
I miss my baby (Oh Lord) but still the same (Oh Lord)
If I saw my baby (Oh Lord) I’d kill her again

I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
