The Story Of The Lawson Family

Lyrics

Friends this is a true story that happened in the hills of western North Carolina in the year 1928. This tragedy occured near the little town of Danburry in Stokes county in the state of North Carolina. It's absolutely true. This man murdered his family, his wife, and himself. His name was Charlie Lawson, and this song is entitled, "The Story of the Lawson Family."

It was long last Christmas evening
The snow was on the ground
At his home in North Carolina
