lyrics

Dora Dora, Dora Lee
she married that fool Justice, she would not wait for me
and when the good lord received her she was 23
it's a hard road leads us home Dora Lee

Dora Dora, I once called you mine
but I did not see fit to marry on the back of one thin dime
you gave me your promise but you would not give me time
Dora you would not give me time

Oh Dora Lee
how could you ever be so mean?
How could you ever lie to me?
How could you dare to let me dream?
Why can't you see,
I would have kept you like a queen?
I saved my silver up for weeks to buy you those glass beads
to wear around your pretty throat
May the good lord save your soul

Dora Dora, Dora Lee
they did not hear me coming, that Justice boy and she
and the devil cast his shadow beneath that apple tree
it's a hard road leads us home Dora Lee

Chorus

Now as I lay me down to sleep
I know I am a sinner, I shall not be received
but I swear I close my eyes and I hear her crying out to me
well let the innocent be saved Dora Lee
