lyrics

Smoking Gun

Ashes were rainin' down in Grafton
Fallin' from the hottest blaze to ever wake this sleepy town

Poor girl, papers claimed she never made it
Husband claimed he couldn't save her cause his old truck went and broke down

He didn't see it comin' till he heard the people scream...

"Wake up the world's on fire
She's gone and someone's a liar
Everybody's talkin', everybody knows what went down

Wake up they're comin' for you
They know about the gas can, gathered all the proof
And you've got 25 to Life to try and figure it out

When all was said and done
You're left holdin' the smoking gun"

Cause the truth is, that city slicker had a loose fist
With the tendency to hit and run to the arms of another sin
When that old house was quiet, it left her to her own devices
So she spent it pourin' fuel on the flames of her sweet revenge

Hell hath no fury, like a woman with a plan
And she was singin'...

"Wake up the world's on fire
She's gone and someone's a liar
Everybody's talkin' Everybody knows what went down

Wake up they're comin' for you
They know about the gas can, gathered all the proof
And you've got 25 to Life to try and figure it out

When all was said and done
You're left holdin' the smoking gun"

Some folks swore they saw her the day they put her in her grave
Said she was standin' on the ridge with a big smile on her face
No matter the truth, God knows she's in a better place

Wake up the world's on fire
She's gone and someone's a liar
Everybody's talkin' but does anybody know what went down?

Wake up they're comin' for you
They know about the gas can, gathered all the proof
And you've got 25 to Life to try and figure it out

When all was said and done
(What goes around has finally come)
When all was said and done
You're left holdin' the smoking gun
