James Alley Blues

…Sometimes I think that you too sweet to die
Sometimes I think that you too sweet to die
And another time I think
You oughtta be buried alive

by Richard ‘Rabbit’ Brown, 1927, New Orleans

Too Sweet to Die

… But up up up goes love
Down down down goes hate
You led me up the garden
And left me by the pearly gates

Oh we’re too sweet to die
We’ll be buried alive
The lipstick on my shirt says
We’re too sweet to die

by the Waco Brothers, To the Last Dead Cowboy, 1995, Chicago
