Feel Like Doin’ Something Wrong

CeDell Davis

I’ve discovered truth in advertising. From the title of CeDell’s first record to the names of each song (e.g. “If You Like Fat Women”: “the only way you’re going to get me baby is to run me down.”), there’s truth in this recording. True licks on a guitar that whirs and plinks, twangs and errs like some druken boat. Truth in a voice dripping with swamp juice and reeking of rotgut. I’ve had this record for some time, and have avoided listening to it much in the past on the theory that it is too wierd, too demanding. That’s wrong though. It’s great fun, if not altogether harmless fun. Consider “Murder My Baby,” a real twister from any point of view: vocals, licks, lyrics, you name it.
“You stay drunk every day. Baby you never come home. That’s why I’ve got to murder you baby. Baby if you don’t stop your cheating lies…
You know I work hard every day. Friday I bring home my pay. Sometime I want my baby woman. Don’t you change your ways? That’s why I’ve got to murder you baby. Baby if you don’t stop your cheating lies. You know I’d rather be in penitentiary baby (pronounced something like “10th century”. Baby I’m ’bout worried out of my mind.
You know I’m sorry sorry baby. She say: ‘I’ve got to leave you alone.’ All I want you to do baby, is be there in the evening when I come home. That’s why I’ve got to murder that woman. Baby if you don’t stop those evil lies. You know I’d rather be in penitentiary baby (pronounced something like “10th century”, rather than worried out of my mind.”
She said: ‘I’m sorry sorry baby. I got to leave you alone.’ All I want you to do baby is love me when I come home. That’s why I’ve got to murder that woman. Baby if you don’t stop your cheating lies. You know I’d rather be in penitentiary baby, than worried out of my mind.”
