Our entry into the great Americana tradition of the Murder Ballad.


My fingers dig like roots into the black, Oregon dirt in which you rest. Stains my dress like sin stained my heart when my lips partook of your final breath. And I'm still waiting for my turn to come around. I'm still waiting to join you in the ground. It has been a full fortnight since I came to lie here beneath your stone. The stars denied us our chapel bells, 'stead this shallow plot is now our sweet home. That dreadful night, I never meant you harm. I'm haunted now by your pale face. I held you so tightly in my arms deliverin' you o'er to death's embrace. And I'm still waiting for my turn to come around. And I deserve, love, to join you in the ground.
