MADLY IN ANGER, 2008

Needles and Thread

 

I was made in the back of a Chevrolet

The only thing my father left me was a worthless name

My mother worked two jobs till she passed away

They say that cancer killed her. I say work dug her grave

 

When it’s my time to go from this life of pain

I’m gonna make damn sure that you remember my name

You will remember my name

 

All the Doctors in Texas

Can’t fix the things that (I’ve/my father’s) done

Needles and thread can’t bring back the dead

 

Now when I left home I cursed my daddy’s name

For making me a rolling stone and driving my mom insane

The first trouble I found I was seventeen

The boy touched my girl and took a swing at me

 

So I cut that boy and never lost a night of sleep

Over the first time I killed a man in New Braunfels Tennessee

 

All the Doctors in Texas

Can’t fix the things that (I’ve/my father’s) done

Needles and thread can’t bring back the dead

 

My last stand was in Tulsa, I set off an alarm

The clerk was gonna keep her life till I heard the sirens from the car

And then sent in a pig to try and calm me down

But 2 slugs in the chest was all that he found

 

Then a hail of fire  started coming my way

It took twenty of them to send me to my grave
