lyrics

She was standing beside the hoarfost
blood dripping from her hands
A big man got rough
A little girl get tough
Now she waiting on the police van
He had a Bolo tie
and a itty bitty fry
he couldnt make the snake shake that night
so when he saw the red mist yeah he gotta surprise
cause my lady she sure can fight

And if I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way, oh lord
I'd tear that building down
I'd tear that building down
I'd burn that whole whorehouse right down to the ground

Now she standing inside the courthouse
Waiting just to plead her case
But the judge has been bought
And now my baby been caught
And now she's looking at the judgment day
Judge lazy eye
got a stomach full of rye
even pink elephants could see
that the woman in the dock with holes in her sock
should not be called guilty

And if I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way, oh lord
I'd tear that building down
I'd tear that building down
I'd tear that courthouse right down to the ground

Kneeling inside the jailhouse
Get down on her knees to pray
There's no help from above
And the girl I love
She gonna be there till her dying day
The warden is hoarding
torture and boarding
He thinks that she ain't got no bite
but if he tries his luck he gonna realize
the wrong end of her knife

And if I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way, oh lord
I'd burn this whole town down
I'd burn this whole town down
I'd burn this whole damn town
right down to the ground
