Mornin', Mrs. Campbell
I heard about the fire

Give me fifty shotgun shells
Just add that to my bill
Says here there ain't no hope
And four packs of cigarettes

I'm so happy for the bride
And the whole town swelled with pride
We've watched her grow to womanhood
She'll learn this life ain't easy

My wife just had a spell
She needs to make her well
I've been laid off at that factory
I came home last Wednesday evenin'

Say howdy to your son
When he gets a bigger gun
It was too bad about that fire
We've gotta teach these people
