First recorded by Spade Cooley, it was released January 15, 1945 (OKeh 6731). With vocals by Tex Williams, it reached number one, spending 31 weeks on the charts. The “B” side, “A Pair of Broken Hearts”—also a hit—reached number eight.

Spade Cooley – Shame on You Lyrics

Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Took my heart as a token
When returned, it was broken
Hide your face, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Took my car and my money
Tell you girl that ain’t funny
Darn your hide, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Ran around with other guys
And try to lie when I got wise
Foolish girl, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Took and play your little game
You’ll find out who was to blame
Hide your face, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Can you hold your head up high
Look your friends right in the eyes
No you can’t, shame on you
No, no, no, shame on you…
