"Kate" lyrics

Kate

Well, I saw you with another
It made me lose my mind
Shot you with my thirty-eight
And now I'm doing time

And you've put me here
You've put me here
Well, there's no way to doubt it
There ain't no two ways about it
As sure as your name's Kate
You've put me here

I've been trying to tell them
That I didn't do no wrong
Only gave you what you've been
Deserving all along

And you've put me here
You've put me here
There ain't no use in denying
You've done it with your lying
As sure as your name's Kate
You've put me here

Well, the jury found me guilty
They wouldn't hear my plea
I listened as that judge said
"Murder in the first degree"

And you've put me here
You've put me here
Well, there ain't no need to doubt it
There ain't no two ways about it
As sure as your name's Kate
You've put me here

Now the warden and the preacher
They're letting me go slow
It won't be long until I'm gone
Just thirteen steps to go

And you've put me here
You've put me here
There's just one way to figure
Your cheating pulled the trigger
As sure as your name's Kate
You've put me here

Well, there ain't no need to doubt it
There ain't no two ways about it
As sure as your name's Kate
You've put me here

Kate, you just plain bad
You know that
