You Done Me Wrong

from by Sandy McFadyean



A Scottish Murder Ballad in the folk / country tradition.


I seen the solitary skerries littered round Iona’s head
And I’ve been round some parts of Galloway no-one’s seen alive or dead
I’ve sat on the top of Blacksidend with not a house for miles to see
But for me there’s been no place lonelier than in your company
Cause woman you doing it wrong wrong wrong
Woman you doing it wrong

You won’t play me songs about being alone, you never been by yourself I’ll bet
While I’ve gotten so goddam lonesome girl they ain’t thought of a word for it yet.
You used to sing about being a lover though you aren’t much of one its true
And I’d rather be the last man living on earth than spend my time with you
You done me wrong woman wrong wrong wrong
Woman you done me wrong

Now soon you’ll be all by yourself when I finish preparing this hole
And Jesus he might want you yet if he can find your soul
I’m glad I beat you with this Brick though I’d not planned to bust your head
But even these flames of hell licking my feet won’t make me sorry that you’re dead
You done me wrong woman wrong wrong wrong
Woman you done me wrong
