'lectric Chair Blues (Blind Lemon Jefferson)

I want to shake hands with my partner and ask him how come he's here I want to shake hands with my partner, ask him how come he's here I had a wreck with my family, they're gonna send me to the electric chair I wonder why they electrocute a man at the one o'clock hour of night And I wonder why they electrocute a man at the one o'clock hour of night Because the current is much stronger, when the folks has turned out all the lights I sat in the electrocutin' room, my arms folded up and cryin' I sat in the electrocutin' room, my arms folded up and cryin' And my baby asked the question, was they gonna electrocute that man of mine? Lemon, get me a taxi to take me away from here Lemon, get me a taxi to take me all away from here I haven't had a good friend in this world, since they lead Lemon to the electric chair I feel like jumpin' in the ocean, I feel like jumpin' in the deep blue sea I feel like jumpin' in the ocean, and like jumpin' into the deep blue sea But nothin' like that wrecked in my heart when they brought my electrocuted daddy to me
