Prosecution Blues

The Cold Stares 2021 Single Song from the album Heavy Shoes

Lyrics

Gonna put you down, down, down
lay you softly on the cold hard ground.
Gonna put you down, down, down
lay you softly on the cold hard ground.
Little girl.
You know you lied and mistreated me, made me
A fool in my own town

I’m gonna put my picture in the window
and let everyone see what you’ve done to me.
I’m gonna put my picture in the window
and let everyone see what you’ve done to me.
I’ve got tears in my poor eyes, and a trembling that won’t let me be

I’m gonna write a letter to the governor,
I hope they charge you with heartache in the first degree.
I’m gonna write a letter to the governor baby,
I hope they charge you with heartache in the first degree.
And they lock you up in a jail cell, and they just throw away the key

Gonna put you down, down, down
lay you softly on the cold hard ground.
Gonna put you down, down, down
lay you softly on the cold hard ground. Little girl.
You know you lied and mistreated me, you made me
A fool in my own home town
