The Lyrics

"But I said to the warden I ain’t like most lifers. I’m just in for killin’ my wife and she needed killin’." —Archie, from Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
Down came a blackbird;
Sat on a fence,
Talkin' ridicule;
Makin' no sense...
Said "He's gone;
Your hubby's gone!"

Down came a blackbird;
Perched on fence post,
Took out a compact;
And said, "Girl, you're toast!
'Cause he's gone;
Your hubby's gone!"

"Gone like a ring down the bathroom sink;
Ain't gonna get it back up, I think!
Gone like a dollar spent on a whore;
Slippin' on out through her second door!
Gone like a promise you might've heard;
Never can trust a politician's word!
Gone like your green when the bank went bust,
Leavin' you to choke on a trail of dust!
He's gone;
Your hubby's gone!"

Down came a blackbird;
Perched on the wire.
Said "Your future with him crashed just like a jet plane,
All your clothes are on fire,
And he's gone;
Your hubby's gone!"

"Gone like a ring down the bathroom sink;
Ain't gonna get it back up, I think!
Gone like your green when the bank went bust,
Leavin' you to choke on a trail of dust!
He's gone;
Your hubby's gone!"

He says he's sick of the parade that traffics through his house,
Your gossiping, and vicious rants, and hatin' on your spouse.
There's got to be some nicer gal who'd be his lovin' wife;
If he stays here someone will get slain in this strife!

Down came a blackbird;
Sat on a fence,
Talkin' in riddles;
And makin' absolute good perfect sense!
'Cause he's gone;
Your hubby's gone!

Gone like a ring down the bathroom sink;
Ain't gonna get it back up, I think!
Gone like a dollar spent on a whore;
Slippin' on out through her second door!
Gone like a promise you might've heard;
Never can trust a politician's word!
Gone like your green when the bank went bust,
Leavin' you to choke on a trail of dust!
He's gone;
Your hubby's gone!

Down came a blackbird...
Down came a blackbird...
