Judy I feel weary now older than a man of thirty-three
The gates of hell just opened after twenty years the warden says I'm free
Revenge was all I wanted when I killed the man that took your life that day
I've had my satisfaction but the price was more than love should have to pay
Lords knows you weren't no lady and the witnesses all swore you was to blame
And the way you teased the menfolk
The jury all agreed you knew no shame knew no shame

Well I'm glad that you can't see me now
You'd probably say that I do not look my best
Those lawyers took my money that Louisiana road gang took the rest
And Judy I can't even conjure up your picture in my mind today
Lately I've been thinkin' what a fool I was to love you anyway
Lords knows you weren't no lady and the witnesses all swore you was to blame
And the way you teased the menfolk the jury all agreed you knew no shame
Well it all seems kinda useless as I place these flowers on your grave today
I don't know what I'm doin' here I've forgotten all the things I came to say
