I had me a wife I had me some daughters
Am chordAm
I tried so hard I never knew still waters

Nothing to eat and nothing to drink
Dm chordDm
Nothing for a man to do but sit around and think
Dm chordDm Am chordAm Dm chordDm
Nothing for a man to do but sit around and think

Dm chordDm
Well I'm a-thinkin' and a-thinkin' till there's nothin' I ain't thunk
Am chordAm
Breathing in the stink till finally I stunk

It was at that time I swear I lost my mind

I started making plans to kill my own kind

Come little daughter I said to the youngest one
Am chordAm
Put your coat on we'll have some fun
Dm chordDm
We'll go out to the mountains the one to explore
Dm chordDm
Her face it lit up I was standing by the door
Dm chordDm Am chordAm Dm chordDm

Come little daughter I will carry the lanterns

Kiss your mother goodnight and remember that God saves
Dm chordDm Am chordAm Dm chordDm
Kiss your mother goodnight and remember that God saves


I led her to a hole a deep black well
I said make a wish make sure and not tell
And close your eyes dear and count to seven
Know your papa loves you good children go to heaven
Know your papa loves you good children go to heaven

No guitar for this verse
I gave her a push I gave her a shove
I pushed with all my might I pushed with all my love
I threw my child into a bottomless pit
She was screaming as she fell but I never heard her hit
She was screaming as she fell but I never heard her hit


Gather 'round boys to the tale that I tell
You wanna know how to take a short trip to hell
It's guaranteed to get your own place in hell
Just take your lovely daughter and push her in the well
Take your lovely daughter and throw her in the well

Don't speak to me of lovers with a broken heart
You wanna know what will really tear you apart
I'm going out to the barn with a never-stoppin' pain
I'm going out to the barn to hang myself in shame
