District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He will take a woman's man and leave her cold in hand
District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He will take a woman's man and leave her cold in hand

A District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He has caused a many mens to
Be in some distant land
District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He have caused so many women to be cold in hand

A District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
Ain't no woman but he sho' will take a woman's man
District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He will take a woman man and leave her cold in hand

A District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He can tell us a-where when he gonna
Take a woman's man
District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
Well, he will take a woman's man and leave her cold in hand

A District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He taken me from my woman
Cause her to love some other man
District Attorney sho' is hard on a man
He will take a woman's man and leave her cold in hand.
