"Lucille" as written by Richard Penniman and Albert Collins....
Somebody, please, if somebody will
Let them take a letter to my girl, Lucille
Let them tell her, Lord, how I'm missing her still
I think about her constantly

Somebody, please, if somebody can
Let them take a letter from this lonely man
All I ask is, Lord, make her understand
I'll die if she don't wait for me

I heard a rumor from the guys in Cell A
You've served your time and you are leaving today
Well, there is something you can do for me
To help your old friend; help me, please
'Cause I've got seven years in this old pen
Till I'm home again

Somebody, please, if somebody will
Let them take a letter to my girl, Lucille
Let them tell her, Lord, how I'm missing her still
I think about her constantly

Somebody, please, if somebody can
Let them take a letter from this lonely man
All I ask is, Lord, make her understand
I'll die if she don't wait for me

To hear you tell it, you're all innocent men
But I was guilty and I'd do it all again
Just to hold her for a minute or two
I'd steal a king's crown; yes, I would
If I don't reach that girl some way
I know there'll be another man around

Somebody, please, if somebody will
Let them take a letter to my girl, Lucille
Let them tell her, Lord, how I'm missing her still
Because I think about her constantly

Somebody, please, if somebody can
Let them take a letter from this lonely man
All I ask is, Lord, why don't you make her understand?
Because I'll die if she don't wait for me

Oh, somebody, please, if somebody will
Let them take a letter to my girl, Lucille
Let them tell her, Lord, how I'm missing her still
I think about her constantly
