Country Death Song

Lyrics

I had me a wife, I had me some daughters.
I tried so hard, I never knew still waters.
Nothing to eat and nothing to drink.
Nothing for a man to do but sit around and think.

I had me a wife, I had me some daughters.
I tried so hard, I never knew still waters.
Nothing to eat and nothing to drink.
Nothing for a man to do but sit around and think.

Amazing track...just short of breath amazing. The violent femme have always been great but this song shows what they're made of.

As I understand it, the father can't make ends meet, begins to starve, goes a bit insane and hatches a plan to kill the innocent kids because they'll go to heaven while the rest of the family carries on with fewer mouths to feed. He does it, comes to his senses and is wracked with guilt, then kills himself in the barn. Not my favorite song, gotta say.
