Casey Bill Weldon - You Shouldn't Do That

I'll take a rope and I believe I hang myself
I'll take a rope and I believe I hang myself
I'll kill my baby maybe she's got someone else

I'm going to the river gonna walk it up and down
yeah I'm going to the river gonna walk it up and down
If my baby quit me gonna jump overboard and drown
yes yes

I'm gonna take my pistol cock it in my baby's face
I'm gonna take my pistol cock it in my baby's face
And let some graveyard be her hiding place

Gonna drink strychnine just to quench my thirst
Gonna drink strychnine just to quench my thirst
Before I go I'm gonna kill my baby first
 
Gonna bury her I'm gonna dig her up again 
Gonna bury her I'm gonna dig her up again
Tell her why I kill her was to spite her other man

Crazy bout that woman can't see why it could be
Crazy about that woman can't see why it could be
Cause if she quit me it'll be the end of me

Stephen Calt's liner notes from Bottleneck Trendsetters of the 1930s describes Weldon's music as the following- "Although Weldon's singing is in the familiar mode of Bill Broonzy, Jazz Gillum and Washboard Sam, his arrangements are unique in blues. He is one step removed from the black musical idiom. His own slide playing, which has strong treble emphasis, is less faithful to blues bottleneck playing than true Hawaiian guitar-playing, and makes use of the customary Hawaiian tuning. He may well have influenced such white slide guitarists as Leon McAuliffe, the steel guitarist for Bob Wills' Texas Playboys. While (his) tremelo runs are reminiscent of modern bluegrass dobro-playing, (his occasional use of) heavily-emphasized backbeat is a staple of Western swing."
