FAYE FUCKER
Indigo Girls


on the night they killed faye tucker

i was gambling away my last dime

yeah well i pulled down the lever

and i sent up a prayer

that my luck would not be denied

my luck would not be denied


so roll out the head of faye tucker

yeah well never you mind what they say

well you may be reborn

but it's all just for scorn

and that's what you'll take to the grave

that's what you'll take to the grave


well the minister wants you to live now

and the governor wants you to fry

and whatever it was that you thought might occur

well they got something else on their minds

they got something else on their minds


if you live they gonna make you a campaigner

(if you live they gonna make you a campaigner)

if you die they gonna make you a grave

(if you die they gonna make you a grave)

either way it goes down

(either way it goes down)

your life's not your own

and that's why killin' don't pay

(hey your life's not your own)

that's why killin' don't pay


oh oh oh oh oh

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh


i thought i heard the angels bells

but they were just the hounds of hell

i thought i heard the angels bells

but they were just the hounds of hell


what did you learn faye tucker

yeah what will you take from this world

yeah well mercy could prove us

but nothing would move us

to rise above just being cruel

to rise above just being cruel
