A SOUTHERN HORROR, 2010

Comal County River

 

Mamma this is the last time

I’m Sick and tired of him

I warned if he hit you

That I’d kill that piece of shit

 

And it won’t take much

For me to get away with it

Nobody asks questions

When they find drunks in a ditch

 

He can no longer hurt you

I dragged his body through the mud

I watched the Comal County river

Mix with his blood

 

So mamma don’t you worry

No, you don’t have to cry

I took daddy to the river

And I said my goodbye

 

You say he’s got a temper

But that ain’t an excuse

He’s always pissed and wired

And you just take the abuse

 

You’ve been covering up your bruises

Just to go to the store

To come home and make him dinner

And have him hit you some more

 

He can no longer hurt you

I dragged his body through the mud

I watched the Comal County river

Mix with his blood

 

So mamma don’t you worry

No, you don’t have to cry

I took daddy to the river

And I said my goodbye


Back then i was just a kid

Wasn’t much I could have done

After all he was my dad

And I am his son
