LOUIS COLLINS
written by Mississippi John Hurt


G C
Ms Collins weep, Ms Collins moan
C C7 F
What made her son Louis leave his home?
C G C
Angels laid him away


CHORUS:
Angels laid him away
Laid him six feet under the clay
Angels laid him away


Oh kind friends, now ain't it hard
To see poor Louis in a new grave yard
Angels laid him away

-CHORUS-

Bob shot one and Louis shot two
Shot poor Collins, shot him through and through
Angels laid him away

-CHORUS-

When they heard that Louis was dead
All the women folks they dressed in red
Angels laid him away

-CHORUS-

Oh kind friends, now ain't it hard
To see poor Louis in a new grave yard
Angels laid him away

-CHORUS-

Mrs Collins weep, Mrs Collins moan
What made her son Louis leave his home?
Angels laid him away

-CHORUS-
