lyrics

Emma Lee was from the country
and prettier than moonlight on the pines
she kissed ole Pete down in Texas
and left him dead on the Mason - Dixon line

CHORUS:
mama mama
what's wrong with me
I can't seem to leave her be
I just can't shake Emma Lee
mama mama
what have I done
she gonna take your only son
watch out boy here come Emma Lee

Everybody loved Elmore James
he was a good good friend of mine
He met Emma back in Georgia
shot him dead for some California wine.

CHORUS:
mama mama
what's wrong with me
I can't seem to leave her be
I just can't shake ole Emma Lee
mama mama
what have I done
she gone take your only son
watch out boy here come Emma Lee

bridge:
I think i'll go to New York City
I hear she's dancing in a bar
i'm gonna tie her hands and fill her up with booze
before she gets too far.

She took me up to her bedroom
with that cocaine all over the place
that's when I pulled out my shotgun
said " Hey Emma this ones for Elmore James".

CHORUS:
mama mama
forgive me
I just couldn't let her be
I just could not shake ole Emma Lee
mama mama
what have I done
now she can't touch your son
goodbye Emma Lee
