​Messin' Up

This song is by Melvin Jackson.

I went up on the mountain, see what Paul Kelly done
Well, he shot his woman and he refused to run
I went up on the mountain, just to see what Paul Kelly done
Well now, you know he shot his woman, and he refused to run

I say, "Kelly, ain't you sorry?" The poor boy shook his head
He said, "The way she been messin' up, Son, know she oughta be dead"
I said, "Kelly, ain't you sorry?", and the poor boy shook his head
He said, "The way she been messin' up, you know, she oughta be dead"

I say, "You got yourself in trouble. Don't you know, "Thou shalt not kill"?"
He said, "The less you say to me, Son, the better I feel"
"Now, you have got yourself in trouble. Don't you know, "Thou shalt not kill"?"
He said, "The less you say to me, Son, well now, the better it make me feel"
