lyrics

Betty came home with two black eyes
Spending her nights with that Westree guy
Momma said to quit him
with a tear in her eye
Betty said she loves him
but she don't know why

Papa’s dead and buried
‘neath the old oak tree
She was daddy's little girl
it was plain to see
My old man was as mean as could be
Now he's long gone and it’s up to me

You're a polite motherfucker
with your hands tied up
Like a barnyard pig just about to get stuck
The knife’s coming down if you like it or not
You won't never get out of my half hitch knot

We all agree that enough is enough
It's been so long now it's gonna stop
Momma says we better call the cops
She picks up the phone and I hang it back up

Momma knows better to involve the law
Unless somebody's dead
they don't come up here at all
Gonna leave another body
‘neath the old oak tree
Close enough that my daddy can see

You’re a polite cocksucker
with your hands tied up
Like a barnyard pig just about to get stuck
The knife’s coming down if you like it or not
You won’t ever get out of my half hitch knot
