My Man Jumped Salty on Me Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Goin' down to the river, take a rope and a rock
Tie it round my neck and jump off the dock
'Cause my man he jumped salty on me
Verse 2
Ain't no one can change my mind
I've been mistreated and I don't mind dyin'
'Cause that man jumped salty on me
Verse 3
Gonna get me some poison, kill myself
'Cause the man I love has put me on the shelf
The dirty old viper jumped salty on me
If he didn't want me he didn't have to lie
The day I see him, that's the day he'll die
'Cause that man jumped salty on me
Verse 4
Baby you don't know my mind
Lord, Lord, Lord, Baby you don't know my mind
When you see me laughin', I'm laughin' just to keep from cryin'
Verse 5
A crooked man's worse than crooked dice
With dice you lose your money, with men you lose your life
Oh that fool jumped salty on me
I'm gonna get me a razor and a gun
Cut him if he stands still, shoot him if he runs
'Cause that man jumped salty on me
