STONE COLD DEAD IN THE MARKET [He Had It Coming] Wilmouth Houdini 1945 as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Louis Jordan & his Tympany Five Oct 8th 1945 New York [ef] He's stone cold dead in de market, He's stone cold dead in de market, He's stone cold dead in de market, I killed nobody but me husband! [lj] Last night I went out drinking, When I came home I gave her a beating, So she catch up the rolling pin And went to work on my head till she bashed it in! I lie cold dead in de market, Stone cold dead in de market, I lie cold dead in de market, She killed nobody but her husband! [ef] I lick him wid de pot and de frying pan, I lick him wid de pot and de frying pan, I lick him wid de pot and de frying pan, Then if I kill him, he had it coming! Man, he's stone cold dead in de market, He's stone cold dead in de market, He's stone cold dead in de market, I killed nobody but me husband! [lj] My family, they swearing to kill her, My family, they swearing to kill her! [ef] His family, they swearing to kill me, And if I kill him, he had it coming! [lj] I lie cold dead in de market, chile, Cold dead in de market, chile, I lie cold dead in de market, She killed nobody but her husband! [ef] There is one thing that I am sure, He ain't goin' to beat me no more! So I tell you that I doesn't care If I was to die in the 'lectric chair! Man, he's stone cold dead in de market, He's stone cold dead in de market, He's stone cold dead in de market, I killed nobody but me husband! [lj] Hey chile, I'm comin' back and bash you on your head one more time! [ef] No no man, you can't do that! You're stone cold dead in de market, murder! Stone cold dead in de market, De criminal is stone cold dead in de market, I killed nobody but me husband! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - July 2012)
