lyrics

ALL THEM PRETTY WOMAN
by Benny Gilbert

My mother said with her darkest breath
them woman gonna love and leave
she breathed her smoke up across the wall
and pulled a dagger up out of her sleeve saying,
"All kinds of woman, are gonna put you in your grave"

I met my true love when I was young
she was standing on the hill on high
she told me low to come around no more
I nearly rolled myself down to die, thinking,
All kinds of woman, are gonna put me in my grave

I left my home when I was young
I traveled all across this land
I had been livin in a copper town when I pretty girl at hand
All these pretty woman, are gonna put me in my grave

There's a dagger for a man in my woman's hand
she's sinking i the ground
I know where she's bound
It's all them pretty woman, are gonna put me in my grave

Many winters went when I was weak and bent
I saw my love again
she was laying on the hill in a pile of pills
I knew where I'd been
with All them pretty woman, Gonna put me in my grave

All along the tracks with a paper sack
I'm waiting on a train
I seen you there and I turned around again
All them pretty woman, are gonna put me in my grave
Oh, in my grave.
