​Take a Walk Around the Corner

This song is by Leroy Carr and appears on the compilation album Leroy Carr Vol. 4 (1932-1934) (1992).

Believe I'll take me a walk, around the corner by myself
Believe I'll take me a walk, around the corner by myself
And if I can't find my baby, I don't want nobody else

She went out last night, and she didn't even say goodbye
She went out last night, and she didn't even say goodbye
How come she left me, Lord I really don't know why

Now I'm going out this morning, my forty‑five in my hand
Now I'm going out this morning, my forty‑five in my hand
Now I'm going to kill my woman, for loving another man

Then I'm going to the judge, and I'm going to fall down on my knees
Then I'm going to the judge, and I'm going to fall down on my knees
Ask him please fair judge, have mercy on me please

Judge I done killed my woman, because she treated me so unkind
Judge I done killed my woman, because she treated me so unkind
Treated me so unkind, till I swear I lost my mind

Well it's please please please, don't send me to the electric chair
Well it's please please please, don't send me to the electric chair
Just give me my time, and I'll try to do it anywhere

When I'm dead and gone, and six feet in the ground
When I'm dead and gone, and six feet in the ground
You can only say, there's a good man has gone down

Oh it looks mighty cloudy, and I believe it's going to rain
Oh it looks mighty cloudy, and I believe it's going to rain
I just love to hear, my baby call my name
