Judge, your honour hear my plea
before you open up your court
lord I don't want no sympathy
'cause I just cut my good man's throat
I caught him with a trifling Jane
I warned him 'bout before
I had my knife and went insane
and the rest you ought to know
Judge, judge, please mister judge
send me to the 'lectric chair
Judge, judge, good mister judge
Let me go away from here
I wanna take a journey
to the devil down below
I done killed my man
I wanna reap just what I sow
Oh judge, judge, lordy lordy Judge
send me to the 'lectric, chair
Judge, judge, hear me judge
send me to the 'lectric chair
Judge, judge, send me there judge
I love him, so dear
I cut him with my Barlow
I kicked him in the side
I stood there laughing over him
while he wallowed round and died
Oh judge, judge, lordly judge
send me to the 'lectric chair
Judge, judge, please mister judge
send me to the 'lectric chair
Judge, judge, good kind judge
Go [..] I don't care
I don't want no bondsman to bond my bail
I don't wanna spend no ninety-nine years in jail
So judge, judge, good kind judge
send me to the 'lectric chair


A slightly more accessible version from Dinah Washington:





Now that's the blues.

Love both versions but Bessie's version is better!
