Track Name: A Robbery.
A Robbery.

Let me tell you about a story/Happened a long time ago/It's all about a man, and a woman, a gun, and a liqour store/Take the money from the register/I'll clean this whiskey from the shelf/She said to the clerk little brother don't you move lest you hurt yourself.

They took off down the countryside/Red dust blowing in the air/They came to a cabin in the woods and held up there/They counted their stolen money/They drank some stolen wine/They stayed up half the night singing This Little Light of Mine.

They made the border at 3am/On a Tuesday in the rain/They left behind their lives in the states and three bodies on a west bound train/They disapeared for 7 years/Vanished like fog from the morning sky/Turned up in a border town/Laid out side by side/Both shot right through the eyes.

The woman's name was Caroline/Her mama called her Carrie-Jean/She took off with her twin brother Jim just before she turned 17.

Their mother was an angel/Loved them more than anything/But she was just no match for their father/When he killed her just before they turned 17/So they waited until he was sleeping/They took his gun from the drawer/They left the body in the bed/Three days later they robbed a liquor store.
