Colter Wall – Kate McCannon lyrics
Well the raven is a wicked bird
His wings are black as sin
And he floats outside my prison window
Mocking those within
And he sings to me real low
It's hell to where you go
For you did murder Kate McCannon

When I first met Tom McCannon
I was working in the mines
Said he had himself a dark haired daughter
With long, green eyes
When she and I did meet
She was bathing in the creek
Prettiest girl in the whole damn holler
That ain't no lie

So I went a courtin' Kate McCannon
Got me a job and I quit my ramblin'
And every day I'd save
A quarter of my pay
I could buy a diamond ring
Lord and one day I come home to find
My darlin' angel's not inside
So I made for the creek
Where she and I did meet
And found her with some other lover
And I put three rounds into Kate McCannon

    This song is about betrayal, love, sin, infidelity and death and beyond words it is one of my favorites now. It really hits you in the heart... what if's float around in my head hearing this song. If something like this happened to me, would I do the same thing? Is love really that strong or is it just the sinful nature in us to murder someone we love after they have betrayed us?
