Daddies Bones

Verse 1
Leland’s out on bail, but he’s on the run
And people say he’s asking for Sonny to get him some guns
Leland signed over the farm, to make his bail
Now the family‘s got word through the swamp press, that Leland’s in catfish grave
If you find daddies bones, could you please send them home
Maybe we can save the farm, if we can prove he’s gone

Verse 2
I can see a bad moon rising said Leland’s son
Cause’ daddies been missing since Sonny delivered those guns

Verse 3
Leland’s lived his life on the wrong side of the Law
But rumors are spreadin’, he made a deal, with Sheriff McGraw
The powers that be don’t take kindly to a snitch
Now Leland is a floater in the swamp south of Deadmans ridge
