I'm gonna take a rope, and I believe I'll hang myself
I'm gonna take a rope, and I believe I'll hang myself
Goin' to kill my baby, 'cause she got someone else

I'm goin' to the river, goin' to walk up and down
I'm goin' to the river, goin' to walk up and down
If my baby quit me, going to jump aboard and drown

I'm gonna take my pistol, cock it in my baby's face
I'm gonna take my pistol, cock it in my baby's face
And let some graveyard be her resting place

I'm gonna drink strychnine just to pacify my thirst
I'm gonna drink strychnine just to pacify my thirst
Before I go, going to kill my baby first

I'm goin' to bury her and dig her up again
I'm goin' to bury her and dig her up again
The reason I killed her for they found another man
