Kathleen Edwards

Copper on the corner and he loaded two rounds

And I can't even get inside to talk you down

Peter, sweet baby, where'd you get that gun?

You spend half your life trying to turn the other half around

And I tried to come clean, but I guess it's no use

Your face is all over six o'clock news

They cleared the street and then they closed the schools

I can't even get inside

Did you lose your head when the farm went down?

Was is when your daddy died after he moved to town

And I know your momma calls you good for nothing

She says her baby is a failer and she don't want you calling

Peter, sweet baby, there's something I need to say to you

Gonna have your baby this coming June

We could get a little place down by Gilmour park

You could do a little time and save my broken heart

And I tried to come clean, but I guess it's no use

Copper when ahead and he just shot you through

Now you're lying dead on the avenue

And I can't feel my broken heart
