She Loved Me (Again)
Lyrics
(Toronzo Cannon, Cannonball Express Music admin. by Small Scale Music, ASCAP)
 
The woman I love
She committed a crime
The woman I love, y’all
She committed a crime
You know she fell in love with me
Now she’s doing time
 
The gun I used
She took it away from me
The gun I used
She took it away from me
Now she’s sitting in jail
Murder in the first degree

Her man used to beat her
And I couldn’t take it no more
Her man used to beat her
And I couldn’t take it no more, no
Now he’s lying dead
On her living room floor

When the cops bust in
She had the smoking gun her hand
When the cops bust in
She had that gun in her hand
She said, “Leave him alone, officer, don’t touch him
I’m the one that shot that man”

When the cops took her away
I had tears rolling down my face
When the cops took her away
I had tears running down my face
‘Cause the woman I love, the woman I love
Just took my murder case

The woman I love
She committed a crime
The woman I love, the woman I love
She committed a crime
You know she loved me more
‘Cause she’s doing my time
 
(Oh, you didn’t have to do it, baby)
