The Lyrics

Funny thing is, certain lines I didn't even have to change. It's basically the same story, but with a different outcome. Sort of a cautionary tale about not getting into pickups driven by handsome strangers...
She was in the backyard - they say it was a little past nine
When her prince pulled up - a white pickup truck
We all shoulda seen it comin’ - it was only just a matter of time
Plenty old enough - but she was awfully dumb!
She stuck a note on the screen door - "sorry but I got to go"
That was all she wrote - her mama's heart was broke
That was all she wrote - so the story goes

Now the cops are going crazy, searching for that pickup,
Hoping that it isn’t too late,
He’ll get 18 years if they can catch him soon,
We all care what happens ‘cause she’s a white woman
Who’s gone in the blink of an eye
If she was any other race
The story would pass us by.

Now don't you wonder what the news is gonna talk about tomorrow morning,
Nothin' quite like this has happened here before
Well he must have been a looker - smooth talkin' son of a gun
For such a grounded girl - to just up and run
Course you can't fence time - and you can’t fix dumb!

Now the FBI and the cops,
Choppers flying nonstop,
Searching for that pickup truck,
All hoping that it’s not too late,
Our little pony-tailed girl not seen in two weeks,
Now she's gone in the blink of an eye
Nancy Grace has the story
On MSNBC at 9!


They found her pretty little bare feet severed in a ditch
On the side of the interstate,
Looks like 18 years ain’t never gonna walk again,
Another cautionary tale about a white woman
Who’s gone in the blink of an eye
They found her head in a bucket
And her body hanging out on the line!
