Peggy Quotes

Peggy's instrumental virtuosity is legendary: guitar, 5-string banjo, autoharp, English concertina, piano, as well as possessing a most extraordinary singing voice which surely gets better every year of her life. Yet some of the most magical moments of the evening were to be had when Peggy simply sat at the piano and tinkered, sharing gentle musical anecdotes with us or poems dedicated to the loves of her life. - Dave VanDoorn, Tradition Magazine

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)
