Bargain Music – The Brothers Chastang lyrics
Daddy always thought he and mom would be forever
But mama knew it was time to leave
Daddy sat his four little boys down and told them "My love your mama don't believe"
There's one more thing that I need to tell you
One little wish before I go
That the insane love I feel for your mama none of you boys will ever know
Bang! Bang! Daddy's dead!
Only hope you felt no pain
So goes the long, long tale, the tale of the Brothers Chastang

Jeremy was the oldest he was hit the hardest
He had to become a 12 year old man
As the years went by he had a bad reputation
The locals they just couldn't understand
Anger turned to hurt, hurt turned back to anger
But anger stayed it never seemed to leave
The winters grew colder, the boys they grew older
Jeremy, Nick, and Ben and little Steve
"God Damn!" Stevie yelled
Nick agreed cause he felt the same
So goes the long, long tale, the tale of the Brothers Chastang

It's always been a hard thing making money in Virginia
Ben was running moonshine down to South Carolina
Ben he heard the sirens and he felt the thunder
As he pulled over he made sure the gun was loaded
Bang! Bang! The law is dead!
His blood had spilled across both lanes
So goes the long, long tale, the tale of the Brothers Chastang

On his way to Mexico Ben called up his brother
"I love you boy there's no time for tears
Something all god damn fucked up now has happened
I won't be back for at least 10 years"
Ben had borrowed Nick's car to run down the moonshine
While Nick he got himself a brand new wife
In Virginia all the cop cars have now got computers
And Nick he got locked away for life
Ben he never made it back up to Virginia
The boys had another reason for grief
But Stevie said the circle of pain must be broken
It's time to turn over a new leaf
He wanted to open some kind of business
He bought the gas station on site
Jeremy needed the shift off and Steve said alright
He wasn't supposed to be there that night
Bang! Bang! Stevies dead!
Hunger drove the robber insane
So goes the sad, sad tale, the tale of the Brothers Chastang
