You're Gonna Quit Me, Baby

Babe, if you leave me,
I'll kill you and go to jail.
You think I'm kidding?

"You're Gonna Quit Me, Baby" is a short, violent song of what most people would consider spousal abuse. It's by Blind Arthur Blake. Dylan's version appears on the 1992 covers album "Good As I Been to You."

You're gonna quit me, baby,
Good as I been to you, Lawd, Lawd.
Good as I been to you, Lawd, Lawd.
Good as I been to you.

Give you my money, honey,
Buy you shoes and clothes, Lawd, Lawd.

You're gonna quit me, baby,
Put me outta doors, Lawd, Lawd.

Six months on the chain gang,
Believe me, it ain't no fun, Lawd, Lawd.

Day you quit me, baby,
That's the day you die, Lawd, Lawd.

Jailhouse ain't no plaything,
Believe me, ain't no lie, Lawd, Lawd.

Day you quit me, baby,
That's the day you die, Lawd, Lawd.
