​Revenge

This song is by David Allan Coe and appears on the album Long Haired Redneck (1976).

Judy, I feel weary now, older than a man of 33
G C D G
The gates of Hell just opened, after 20 years the warden says I'm free
D
Revenge was all I wanted
C D G
When I killed the man that took your life that day
G C
I've had my satisfaction, but the price was more
D G
Than love should have to pay

D
Lord knows you weren't no lady
C D G
And the witnesses all swore you was to blame
D
And the way you teased the menfolk
C G D
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 I do not look my best
Those lawyers took my money
And that Louisiana road gang took the rest

D C D G
And Judy I can't even conjure up your picture in my mind today
G C D G
Lately I've been thinkin' what a fool I was to love you anyway

Well it all seems kind of useless
As I place these flowers on your grave today
I don't know what I'm doing here
I've forgotten all the things I came to say
