Digger Dave was a friend of mine
Got himself into a bit of a mess one time
Mindin’ his business, drinkin’ his wine
When he heard a shotgun blast

It wasn’t anything he hadn’t heard before
But then that girl Christine came cryin’ through his door
Screamin’, "Yukon Jack told me to get rid of this thing fast!"

"Yukon Jack" and "Digger Dave" sounds like a couple of names
That I might’ve just made up
But I’m tellin’ you, this is the truest story I tell

She set down the gun, took off runnin’
Digger Dave followed, and soon come up on
That death wish kid from Michigan
He’s layin’ there, shot up all to hell

He got a death wish since they come up from the lower forty-eight
And they’d all been drinkin’ vodka for two days straight
When the fist fight started, it was already too late
For anyone to keep any peace

No one could remember what the fight was about, but
By all accounts, the kid pulled the first gun out
In self-defense, beyond a shadow of a doubt
Is what they all agreed to tell the police
Digger Dave said, "No, y’all are on your own with this."
Walked over to A.J.’s and drank himself p*ssed
Cop yellow tape was strung out all over the place
When he finally come walkin’ back out

A victim of circ*mstance if ever there was one
Last time I saw him, he said that he had just done
A year and a half for what he called
"Lettin’ that crazy b*t*h into his house"

Got a new song about it, though, sang it for me behind the club
It said, "Crazy woman blues, I got the crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues, I never shoulda let her into my house"

Said it’s like, "Crazy woman blues, I got the crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues, I never shoulda let her into my house"

Only one way to know how far is just far enough
You gotta go a little bit too far, and then back up
Back up, and hope hard luck ain’t on your side

The town council had already planned to meet
About all the drinkin’ and druggin’ down there on Brunelle Street
About a little bit too late, I guess
At least for that kid that died
Crazy woman blues, crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues, I never shoulda let her into my house
I got the crazy woman blues, the crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues, I never shoulda let her in the house
