John D. Hale Band – Face Down Dead lyrics

This afternoon when I came home from work I didn't expect what I was about to see my darlin wife was layin in my bed with
Some other man than me well it was ol Tommy Johnson the neighbors oldest son and as the anger filled me up well I reached for
My gun and he screamed and said please don't do it as the hatred was runnin through my head as I pulled the trigger back
Slowly but surely he took his last breath and he fell face down dead
Well my wife just sat there cryin in pure disbelief from what I'd done I said as much as I love you dear I just can't trust
You and his death wont be the only one and she screamed and said please don't do it as the hatred was runnin through my head
As I pulled the trigger back slowly but surely she took her last breath and she fell face down dead
Now I'm all alone with nowhere to run and I don't have no place to hide this murderin gun no I wont live my life out in no 8
By 10 cell as I reach for my gun and it's one lonely shell and sirens screamed as I stood there with that. 38 to my head as I
Pulled the trigger back slowly but surely I took my last breath and I fell face down dead
