Hugh Laurie - Send Me To The 'lectric Chair Lyrics




[Hugh]
All rise!

[Sista Jean]
Judge, your Honour, hear my plea
Before you open up your court
I don't want no sympathy
'Cause I done 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

Judge, Judge, good Mister Judge
Send me to the 'lectric chair
Judge, Judge, oh Lordy Judge
I love him so dear

I cut him with my barlow
I kicked him in the side
I stood here laughing o'r him
While he wallowed around and died

Oh Judge, Judge, good Mister Judge
Send me to the 'lectric chair

Judge, Judge, sweet Mister Judge
Send me to the 'lectric chair
Judge, Judge, good kind Judge
Burn me, I don't care

I don't want no one good mayor
To go my bail
I don't want to spend no
Ninety-nine years here in jail
Oh Judge, Judge, sweet Mister Judge
Send me to the 'lectric chair
Judge, Judge, good kind Judge
Send me to the 'lectric chair [x4]

  1. Priscila Guadalupe Amaral Bañuelos

    12 persons haves sarcoidosis

  2. Natur Kraft

    your are the best...the filing...the soul...thanx for all your are do...your are in my mind Markus

  3. SirRobinDeSway

    No....overdone. Overblown. Even the vocal. You can hear that, cant you? Too much showbiz. Bessie Smith is the standard. Go listen. Then see what you think.

  4. Marci PortoMendes

    Amazing G. House

  5. the thinker

    that's not hugh laurie.

    Isaac B Ch

    Hugh Laurie wanted this álbum to have allot of women voice.

    So what if he doesn't sing in this song. Its damn great

    CarolJ2013

    @Isaac B Ch but shouldn't they identify the singer?

    Eric Lino

    @CarolJ2013 The singer's name is defnitely on the credits in the CD. the video is entitled "Hugh Laurie(...)" because it's his band. THe singer is just an instrument like any other.

  6. MOEMA UNGARELLI

    Maravilhoso!...,

    It's an amazing piece of American folk music. Awesome! I love it soooo much!

  10. florian agay

    Like the song but not the voice, that's a pity

    Howesenberg Films

    I felt that way too, have you listened to it a few times? I find it grows on you and now I kind of love it.

  11. Mike Weber

    I like David Bromberg's version better ... but to each his own.

  12. jim brown

    outstanding !!!

  13. Theodoro Evangelos

    Great piece of art.

  14. MrShepperson

    Jean McClain does a great version that Bessie Smith would have been proud of!

  15. Pauline Chapalain

    Nice !! :)

  16. Definitely not Venom77
