From: Richard Bridge

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"

GO ON HOME
Written by Sanford Clark.
As recorded by Sanford Clark, 1960.

well, you say you're gonna cut me,
Put me six feet under.
Better listen to me, buddy,
To what I've 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 fam'ly,
Don't feel so nice,
So before you reach
For that blade,
I didn't do that time just for shootin' dice.

I wasn't lookin' 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,
Better go home and throw that blade away.

Quick work, Guest!

Here's the recording on youTube: Sanford Clark - Better Go Home (Throw That Blade Away)

Richard, is that enough for you to go on to find chart performance for this song?

The Sanford Clark album "Shades" has this song, "Better Go Home (Throw that blade away)" and 26 more.
Also on his album, "They Call Me Country."

Recorded years ago, these albums are currently out of stock at Amazon .ca and .com (didn't look at UK); try Ebay- saw one used "Shades" there..

It's a VERY weird song

Is it a song you are longing to sing Richard?

Sounds like something Johnny Cash might have sung. (I swear I've heard someone either sing it or tell about it.)

Sanford Clark was moderately popular in the country-folk circles back in the vinyl days.
The sound is poor on the youtube cut.

Your "band" might not include this sort of "folk" would it?

Here is a version of it done by my band, The Hustlers.
We have played it at almost every gig we have done since 1962.
