Remember Kids, The Only Good Cop Is A Dead Cop

Charley Patton - Tom Rushen lyrics

Laid down last night, hopin I would have my peace, eee
I laid down last night, hopin I would have my peace, eee
But when I woke up, Tom Rushen was shakin' me
When you get in trouble,
it's no use to screamin and cryin', hmm
When you get in trouble,
it's no use to screamin and cryin', hmm
Tom Rushen will take you, back to the prison house flyin'
It were late one night, Halloway was gone to bed, hmm
It were late one night, Halloway was gone to bed, hmm
Mister Day brought whiskey taken from under Halloway's head
An' it's boozy booze, now, Lord, to cure these blues
It takes boozy boo, Lord, to cure these blues
But each day seems like years in the jailhouse
where there is no boo'
I got up this mornin, Tom Day was standin' around
I got up this mornin, Tom Day was standin' around
If he lose his office now, he's runnin' from town to town
Let me tell you folksies just how he treated me
Let me tell you folksies just how he treated me
Aw, he caught me yellin, I was drunk as I could be
