Evil Hearted Me - Johnny Horton

Evil Hearted Me

Johnny Horton

(Johnny Horton, COLUMBIA CS 9940, 1970)

Well, when the sun rose this morning
I was feeling mighty bad
My baby said; "good morning"
Hell, it made me mad
Because I was evil, evil hearted me
I'm down right evil, evil as a man can be

Well, she even cooked my breakfast
And she brought it to my bed
I took a sip of coffee, and throwed cup at her head
Because I was evil, evil hearted me
Yeah, I'm down right evil, evil as a man can be

I don't even care if my baby leaves me flat
I got fory-eleven others if it comes to that
You know I'm evil, evil hearted me
I'm down right evil, evil as a man can be

I'm a deep sea diver with a stroke that can't go wrong
(Deep sea diver, deep sea diver)
I'm a deep sea diver with a stroke that can't go wrong
(Deep sea diver, deep sea diver)
I can scrape the bottom and my wind holds out so long

I bought me a coffee grind
I got the best one that I could find
Yeah, I bought me a coffee grind
And got the best one that I could find
So she could could grind my coffee
'Cause she had a brand new frind

I boiled her first cabbage and I made it oh so light
I boiled her first cabbage and I made it oh so light
And when I put in the bacon, Lord, it overflowed the pot

So when you get good loving
Don't you go and spread the news
And when you get good loving baby
Don't you go and spread the news
'Cause your man will leave you
With those empty bed blues
