Thread Name: Lyr Add: Go On Home (Sanford Clark)
Subject: I seek info (title etc) on this song pls
Trying to trace/remember the name of a song, and who recorded it and what its chart performance was....

It goes:

"Well, you say you're going to cut me, put me 6 feet under.
Better listen to me buddy, to what I got to say
I ain't a bad man, that's plain to see
But bad men don't mess around with me

Well I'm fresh out of prison, ten years in San Quentin
Lost my wife and family, don't feel so nice
So before you reach for that blade
I didn't do that time just for shooting dice

I wasn't looking for trouble, I never do
But the man I killed acted just like you

Well I had a little boy, like the one you've got
Though you ain't much, I guess you're all he's got
You better go home, just walk away
You'd better go home and throw that blade away"
