Daddies Bones

Back to top

Leland’s out on bail, but he’s on the run

And people say he’s asking for Sonny to get him some guns

Leland signed over the farm, to make his bail

Now the family‘s got word through the swamp press, that Leland’s in catfish grave

Chorus

If you find daddies bones, could you please send them home

Maybe we can save the farm, if we can prove he’s gone

 

I can see a bad moon rising said Leland’s son

Cause’ daddies been missing since Sonny delivered those guns

 

Leland’s lived his life on the wrong side of the Law

But  rumors are spreadin’, he made a deal, with Sheriff McGraw

The powers that be don’t take kindly to a snitch

Now Leland is a floater in the swamp south of Deadmans ridge

 

Chorus
