Killing Floor
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics


I should of quit you
A long time ago
I should of quit you baby
A long time ago
But you got me messin' round with you baby
You got me cryin' on a killin' floor, yeah
If I don't fallow, yeah
My first mind
If I don't fallow pretty baby
My first mind
I would have been gone since my second time
Yeah
Lord knows, right now
I should've been gone
Lord knows, I should've been gone
You got me messin' round with you baby
You got me cryin' on a killin' floor
Yeah, that's all
Ooh, you got me cryin' baby
Ohh, you got me cryin'

FYI: The phrase "Killing Floor" is a classic blues passage/motif, dating back centuries to when many lower working class Americans worked in stockyards & slaughterhouses, & eventually it turned into a common saying, blues lyric, & eventual rock lyric. Every slaughterhouse had what was known as a killing floor, where the animals were taken to be butchered -- so for someone to say that they were "going to/headed to the killing floor" meant that they were in big trouble, having bad luck, or in bad shape. For example, if you were having problems with your wife or old lady, then you would say, "That woman has got me down on this killing floor"
