"Woman Go" as written by and Joe Purdy....
He says woman go and get me water
He says woman go and get me water
Now woman go and get me water
Go and get if from a stream/I'm gonna get if from a stream?

Then she looks at him and she starts to stomp around
She picks that/them bucket up?
Oh and then she throws it down
Throws it down
She says I ain't gonna get you water
I ain't gonna get you water
I ain't gonna get you water
Go and get it for yourself

Then he gets up from his chair and he strikes her on the face
Puts that bucket in her hand and he sends her on her way
He says woman go and get me water
Yeah woman you're gonna go and get me water
Now woman go and get me water

You're gonna be the death of me, yeah

She gets back with her pail and she pretends to fill it up
She grabs for somethin else and then she hands him his cup

She says go ahead and drink you water
Now go ahead and drink your water
Well go on drink your water
You can drink it up for me, yeah

He takes a little drink and his face is turning red
Falls to the ground cause he can't breathe
In a minute he'll be dead, he'll be dead

She says that's the last time I get you water
It's the last time I get you water
It's the last time I get you water
Don't ever ask again

    General CommentThis is an excellent story that reminds me a bit of the book "The Color Purple". The song has a way of making you an observer of this abusive husband's deserving demise.

    General CommentYou're right, definite irony...He's just using that cliche to express how he feels but little does he know, that she actually will be the death of him....Who knows, whether he gave her the idea to poison him? Thats the real question right?
