You outta be locked up, Baby
you outta be doin' some hard time
You outta be locked up, Baby
you outta be doin' some hard time
It was just this side of murder
the way you did me, was such a crime

You broke my heart, Baby
with all your cheatin' and lyin'
You broke my heart, Baby
with all that cheatin' and lyin'

It was just this side of murder
The way you did me, was such a crime

Well, I went to see the judge to see
what he would say, he said - "man,
I know that woman, she did me the very
same way"

Oh you outta be locked up baby,
you outta be doin' some hard time

It was just this side of murder
the way you did me was such a crime

Well, she didn't use a knife
she didn't use a gun,
but the way she used that -thing-
she should be public enemy number 1

Ah, you outta be locked up, baby
you outta be doing some hard time
it was just this side of murder
the way you did me was such a crime
you outta be locked up baby
you outta be doin some hard time
it was just this side of murder
the way you did me was such crime

very nice guitar and harp man! vocal real "white", but that's who's singing most blues stuff now anyway, and good job.

Congratulations! Loved this song. Especially liked the harp and the rhythmic bass. Vocal was excellent. Lots of energy and obviously the musicians are very skilled - good work!

Big and bold - screams "shut up and listen" right from the beginning. Amazing instrumentation.

very cool funky blues track. musically its great. loved different guitar parts on the backing expertly made. and the harmonica. good vocals and style. would sound good up loud on the stereo.
