Peggy Quotes 2

Seeger the folk singer from New York, offers us a remarkably unique style on this song; her vocals bend, twist and turn shaving off any kind of traditional approach to her genres. The beats and guitars compliment Peggy’s soft and laid back melodies.

I Been a BAD BAD GIRL

from the singing of Ozella Jones. State Penitentiary, Raiford, Florida 1936

 

I been a bad, bad girl

Wouldn’t treat nobody right.

I been a bad, bad girl

Wouldn’t treat nobody right.

They wanna give me thirty-five year

Someone wanted to take my life.

 

CHORUS:    Now’m so sorry, even the day I was born

        Now’m so sorry, even the day I was born.

        I wanna say to all you bad fellas

        That you are in the wrong.

 

Judge, please don’t kill me,

I won’t be bad no more

Judge, please don’t kill me

I won’t be bad no more.

I’ll listen to everybody,

Something I never done before.  (chorus)

 

I’m sittin’ here in prison

With my black cap on

I’m sittin’ here in prison

With my black cap on.

Boys, remember me

Even when I am dead and gone. (chorus)
