I need to complete this Creepy John (original by John Spider Koerner) version by Andy Roberts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DwbFlPuzR8

CREEPY JOHN
Woke up in the mornin'
read the morning news
they said there was a murder            it said
and weren't no clues
it wasn't only one                     there wasn't
.....................
I asked my baby and you know what she said

chorus:
Creepy John, was Creepy John
tell all you people
they knowed it was Creepy John

women went home
locked the doors
they wouldn't go walking
in the street no more
they shut the windows
and closed the blinds
they got one thing on their worried minds

chorus

Creepy John gonna strike
most anywhere
he don't care if it's the washer woman
or millionaire
...........
where you're come from
all the women are the same to Creepy John

chorus

my honey left the house
at twelwe at night
she said don't worry
everything will be alright
.................
.................
I heard a scream and my blood run cold

chorus

the police searchin'
all over town
got on his trail now
couldn't run him down
Chicago New York
there's women lying dead
I tell you one thing they ain't got him yet

chorus

YouTube has recordings of CREEPY JOHN by Spider John Koerner (with Chip Smith) and Andy Roberts.

Conditions are not good for me to transcribe it right now, but I might do it later, if nobody beats me to it.

Jim, this version is by John Koerner. I'm interested in Roberts version that is different

I picked up the paper, Read the morning news.
They said it was a murder, And there weren't no clues.
It wasn't only one, There were three women dead.
I asked my baby and you know what she said:
It was Creepy John.
Creepy John.
Let me tell all you people, You know it was Creepy John.

Women went home, Closed the doors.
They wouldn't go walking, In the street no more.
They shut the windows, And drew the blinds.
Ain't got one thing on their worried minds, was Creepy John.
Creepy John.
Let me tell all you people, They knowed it was Creepy John.

Creepy John gonna strike, Most anywhere.
Kills washer woman, Or millionaire.
Don't make no difference, Now, where you're from.
All the women are the same to Creepy John.
Creepy John.
Let me tell all you people, They knowed it was Creepy John.

Now the police are searching, All over town.
Got on his trail now, Couldn't run him down.
Chicago, New York, There's women lying dead.
I tell you one thing they ain't got him yet, Creepy John.
Creepy John
Let me tell all you people, They know it was Creepy John.

OK, here's my transcription from the YouTube recording:


CREEPY JOHN
As sung by Andy Roberts

I woke up in the mornin', read the mornin' news.
He said it was murder and there ain't no clues.
[It] wasn't only one. It's three women dead.
I asked my baby. You know what she said:
It's Creepy John. Ooh, Lord, it's Creepy John.
I tell you now, people, you knowed it was Creepy John.

All the women went home, locked up the doors.
Won't go walkin' in the street no more.
They shut the windows and they close the blinds.
They got one thing on their worried mind.
It's Creepy John. Ooh, Lord, it's Creepy John.
I tell you now, people, you knowed it was Creepy John.

Creepy John gonna strike 'most anywhere.
Don't care if it's a washer woman or a millionaire.
Don't much matter now where you come from.
All women the same to Creepy John.
It's Creepy John. Ooh, Lord, it's Creepy John.
I tell you now, people, you knowed it was Creepy John.

My babe left the house 'bout twelve at night
She said don't worry everything's gonna be all right
Hadn't hardly got to walkin' out o' my front door
I heard a scream. My blood run cold.
It's Creepy John. Ooh, Lord, it's Creepy John, yes, it is.
I tell you now, people, you knowed it was Creepy John.

The police searched all over town.
Got on his trail now, couldn't track him down.
Chicago, New York, There's women lyin' dead.
[I] tell you some day they'll get him yet.
He's Creepy John. Ooh, Lord, it's Creepy John.
I tell you now, people, you knowed it was Creepy John.

Was Creepy John, hey, Creepy John
Was Creepy John, yeah, Creepy John
Ooh, yeah, Creepy John now
Was Creepy John. Said it twice. Creepy John.
