tell ol’ bill lyrics – eric bibb

tell ol’ bill when he comes home this morning
tell ol’ bill when he comes home
tell ol’ bill when he comes home
leave them down town girls alone
this morning, so soon

bill left home by the alley gate this morning
bill left home by the alley gate
bill left home by the alley gate
old sal said, “hey bill, don’t be late”
this morning, so soon

bill’s sweet wife was baking bread in the morning
bill’s sweet wife was baking bread
bill’s sweet wife was baking bread
when she found out her bill was dead
this morning, so soon

she cried, “oh no, it cannot be
oh no, it cannot be”
she cried, “oh no, it cannot be”
they killed my bill in the third degree
this morning, so soon

well, they brought bill home in a hurry-up wagon
brought him on home in a hurry-up wagon
they brought bill home in a hurry-up wagon
poor old bill his boots were draggin’

tell ol’ bill when he comes home this morning
tell ol’ bill when he comes home
tell ol’ bill when he comes home
leave them down town girls alone
this morning, this morning, in the morning
oh, oh
