about

Originally written / recorded by The Murder City Devils.

lyrics

She was the best thing.
He switched from rum to whiskey.
She was the only decent thing in a good for nothing town.
She was the prettiest girl in an ugly town.
He must feel sorry
I know he hates it
He switched from rum to whiskey
(Bang bang) bang bang, he put her down
(Bang bang) bang bang, he put her down down
She was the best thing, best thing that he ever had
Do you remember the beer on her breath?
Do you remember your hands on the hem of her dress?
Do you remember crying when the skirt she wore tucked under your hand?
He switched from rum to whiskey
bang bang, he put her down
(Bang bang) bang bang, he put her down
(Bang bang) he switched from rum to whiskey
(Bang bang) he switched from rum to whiskey
Did it keep you from finding someone new?
Bang bang
He took her down in two
She was the best thing in this god forsaken town
I'm sure that he longs to be free of sin
He switched from rum to whiskey
(Bang bang) bang bang, he put her down
(Bang bang) bang bang, he put her down
(Bang bang) he switched from rum to whiskey
(Bang bang) he switched from rum to whiskey
