Wicked fate

lyrics

The fog was glowing 'neath the harvest moon that night. His cheatin' wife in mind and in his hand a knife. He walked the gravel road the devil as his guide and when he reached the end he took his woman's life. He found a spot for her behind an empty shed - looked down at trembling hands and saw that they were red.

He heard the bubbling coming from a nearby stream. As he got close he started recognizing things. This place was holy ground about ten years before when he got wet to join the family of the Lord. He hoped the water could still wash away his sin - saw his face reflecting in a shimmering pool of red.

His hands were clean but his heart and soul were black 'cuz once you cross a certain line there ain't no coming back. He walked the gravel road back down to the shed but didn't see the cheatin' man or the gun aimed at his head. He tried to scream for help but he knew he was dead 'cuz when he looked around all he saw were burning shades of red.
