​Suicide Blues

This song is by Leroy Carr and appears on the compilation album Leroy Carr Vol. 6 (1934-1935) (1992).

If somebody finds me, when I'm dead and gone
If somebody finds me, when I'm dead and gone
Say I did self‑murder, I died with my boots on

Took me a Smith and Wesson, and blew out my brains
Took me a Smith and Wesson, and blew out my brains
I didn't take no poison, I couldn't stand the strain

No I ain't no coward, and I'll tell you why
No I ain't no coward, and I'll tell you why
I was just tired of living, but wasn't afraid to die

Take me to the graveyard, put me in the ground
Take me to the graveyard, put me in the ground
Please write on my tombstone, my woman threw me down

In my farewell letter, someone's sure to find
In my farewell letter, someone's sure to find
Goodbye old cruel world, I'm glad I left you behind
