Last night buddy, I caught you kissin' my wife
Don't ya know I'm gonna take your life?
I've got the gangster blues
I've got the gangster blues
I've got the gangster blues
Boys, I am feelin' mean

I'm gon' take you for an easy ride
Drop you off on the riverside
I got the gangster blues
I've got the gangster's blues
I've got the gangster's blues
Boys, I am feelin' mean

I'm gonna bound yo' mouth so you can't talk
Tie yo' feet so you can't walk
I've got the gangster's blues
I've got the gangster's blues
I've got the gangster's blues
Boys, I am feelin' mean

You can start your screamin' but must give in
I'm gonna tear you a-pieces and put you back, again
I've got the gangster's blues
Now, I've got the gangster blues
I've got the gangster's blues
Boys, I am feelin' mean

Put up your hands and reach for the sky
Won't let you down before you bat an eye
I've got the gangster's blues
I've got the gangster's blues
I've got the gangster's blues
Boys, I am feelin' mean

I'm gonna bury you out on the lone prairie
Because I know you's bide'n on me
I've got the gangster's blues
I've got the gangster's blues
I've got the gangster blues
Boys, I am feelin' mean.
