"I'm Leaving You" as written by and C. Burnett....
I'm leavin' you woman....before i commit some crime
I'm leavin' you woman....before i commit a crime
You the evilest woman....i think ever crossed my mind

You put poison in my coffee....instead of milk or cream
You poison my coffee....in with that milk and cream
You're the meanest woman....i think i've most ever seen

You mix my drink....with a can of red devil lye
You mix my drink....with a can of red devil lye
Then you sit right down....watchin' me....hopin' i might die

You better be watchin' me baby....baby it was not my time
You better be watchin' me baby....just might be your time

    General CommentStraightforward lyrics abut a "poisonous" relationship.
    It's actually a cover of a Howlin Wolf song with the guitar riffs by the recently departed and great Hubert Sumlin, Smokestack Lightnin' style.
