I got a gal in Cedartown, Georgia
I used to have to walk nearly three miles to court her
She never had much, just a sharecropper's daughter
But I married her and took her down to New Orleans
She got a little house in the South French Quarter

Got a job tookin' bales load them on steamboat
I give a seven days pay, next day I'm broke
When she ain't a sleepin' all day she's a primpin'
Every evenin' when the sun goes down
She starts a swarmin' on Orleans town

Walkin' into work this mornin' at daybreak
I caught her with the tall long dandy from Canebrake
She walked right by me and she looked right through me
I made up my mind what I'm a gonna do
Eased in the pawnshop and bought a 22

I watched as the room clerk gave them a room key
A standin' right outside I could read Room 23
Tonight I'll put her on a train for Georgia
Gonna be a lotta kin folks squallin' and a grieving
'Cause that Cedartown gal ain't breathing
