Lyrics
Woman down in Memphis
I bought myself a forty-four
Listen to my warning
Stay away from my front door
Gone and thought the whole thing over
Now I know you had me blind
Oh! Woman down in Memphis
Goin' to get you off my mind
Woman down in Memphis
Told me that your love was true
You made me spend my money
Like a trusting man wil do
Said that we would soon get married
Said you'd always do me right
Oh! Woman, you was triflin'
Soon as I was out of sight
Went to the doctor
I asked him what was wrong with me
Doctor looked me over, said I had that old TB
Said I'd have to leave this country
Stay away from Memphis town
Oh! He said I'd been grievin'
'Till my health was all broke down
Woman down in Memphis
Listen to my lonesome song
Woman down in Memphis
Won't be singin' very long
When they take me to the graveyard
Lay me in the cold cold ground
Oh! Woman down in Memphis
Hope the Lord will strike you down
