T-Bone Burnett - There Would Be Hell To Pay Lyrics

When all the ladies heard that he was dead

Some wore orange dresses

And some wore red



When all the ladies heard that he had died

He could hear them wailing

All the way on the other side



Police officer

Walked onto the plan

Don't come any closer

Said Curtis to the man



Curtis said to Delia as she turned to walk away

You so very beautiful but you gonna die someday



Judge he said to Curtis

What's this noise about

Curtis said these evil men

Are trying to put me out



When all the ladies heard that he was dead

Some wore black dresses

And some wore red



He unhooked his revolver and pulled on his gloves

Just before he folded King Queen Jack Ten Nine of clubs



He saw Delia leaning over by the door

Stood at the table and he pulled his forty four



Delia started crying fell on her knees to pray

Delia begged for mercy but there would be hell to pay



When all the ladies heard that he was dead

Some wore orange dresses

And some wore red



When all the ladies heard that he had died

He could hear them wailing

All the way on the other side



Curtis said Your Honor

What might be my fine?

The judge said Poor Boy

You get ninety nine

Other existence identity light

Mojo come to my house then back into the night



Delia was a gambling girl she would scream and shout

She placed a rose at MojoÕs tomb then blew the candle out



When all the ladies heard that he was dead

Some wore orange dresses

And some wore red



When all the ladies heard that he had died

He could hear them wailing

All the way on the other side
