    Coward Of The County

    Post  LunioLuny on Fri Dec 10, 2010 5:10 pm

    Everyone considered him
    The coward of the county
    It never stool one single time
    To prove the county's
    His mama named him Tommy
    The folks just called him Yellow
    Something always told me
    They were reading Tommy's wrong
    He was only ten years old
    When his daddy died in prison
    I looked after Tommy
    Because he's my brother's son
    I still recalled the final words
    My brother said to Tommy,
    "Son, my life was over,
    But yours just begun.
    Promised me son,
    Not to do the things I've done,
    Walked away form troubles if you can
    It won't mean your weak
    If you turned the other cheek
    I hope you're old enough to understand
    Son you don't have to fight to be a man
    There's someone for everyone."

    And Tommy's love was working
    The gambling boys came calling
    They took turns of Veckie
    And there was three of them
    Tommy opened up the door
    Saw his Veckie crying
    The torn dress, the shattered look
    Is more than he could stand
    He reached above the fire place
    And took down his daddy's face
    He heard these words again
    Promised me son
    Not to do the things I've done,
    Walked away form troubles if you can
    It won't mean your weak
    If you turned the other cheek
    I hope you're old enough to understand
    Son you don't have to fight to be a man
    The gambling boys just laughed at him
    When he walked into the barroom
    One of them got up
    And meet him halfway cross the floor
    When Tommy turn around
    They said,
    Hey look old Yellow's leaving
    But you could have heard a pin drop
    When Tommy stop and lock the door
    The bottle up inside him
    He let them have it all
    He wouldn't hold nothing back
    He let them have it all
    When Tommy left the barroom
    Not a gambling boy was standing
    He said this one's for Veckie
    As he watched the last one fall
    I heard him say
    I promised you dad
    Not to do the things you've done,
    I walked away form troubles when I can
    Now please don't think I'm weak
    I didn't turn the other cheek
    And papa I surely hope you understand
    Sometimes you got to fight when you're a man
    Everyone considered him
    The coward of the county
