Album: The True False Identity (2006) Lyrics: When all the ladies heard that he was dead Some wore orange dresses And some wore red When all the ladies heard that he had died He could hear them wailing All the way on the other side Police officer Walked onto the plan Don't come any closer Said Curtis to the man Curtis said to Delia as she turned to walk away You so very beautiful but you gonna die someday Judge he said to Curtis What's this noise about Curtis said these evil men Are trying to put me out When all the ladies heard that he was dead Some wore black dresses And some wore red He unhooked his revolver and pulled on his gloves Just before he folded King Queen Jack Ten Nine of clubs He saw Delia leaning over by the door Stood at the table and he pulled his forty four Delia started crying fell on her knees to pray Delia begged for mercy but there would be hell to pay When all the ladies heard that he was dead Some wore orange dresses And some wore red When all the ladies heard that he had died He could hear them wailing All the way on the other side Curtis said Your Honor What might be my fine? The judge said Poor Boy You get ninety nine Other existence identity light Mojo come to my house then back into the night Delia was a gambling girl she would scream and shout She placed a rose at Mojos tomb then blew the candle out When all the ladies heard that he was dead Some wore orange dresses And some wore red When all the ladies heard that he had died He could hear them wailing All the way on the other side
