James Brown allegedly called out on Tex for a "battle" during a dance at a local juke joint. In 1960,Tex left King and recorded a few songs for Detroit-based Anna Records, one of the songs he recorded was the ballad "Baby, You're Right". A year later, Brown recorded the song and released it in 1961,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz2mL8HyJrY changing up the lyrics and the musical composition, earning Brown co-songwriting credits along with Tex. By then, Brown had recruited singer Bea Ford, who had been married to Tex prior but had divorced in 1959. In 1960, Brown and Ford recorded the song, "You've Got the Power".http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rd9ACGrz_oI Shortly afterwards, Tex got a personal letter from Brown telling him that he was through with Ford and if Tex wanted her back, he could have her. Tex responded by recording the diss record, "You Keep Her", where he called Brown's name out.
James i got your letter
It came to me today
You said I can have my baby back
But I don't want her that way
So you keep her
You keep her becaus man, she belongs to you
she didn't make up her own mind
To come home on to me
So I found me someone else
and we're happy as can be
You keep her you keep her becaus man she belongs to you
but you can tell I say hello .................
