EmAmBilly broke in and saw the blood on the floor, and AmHe turned around and put the lock on the door DmHe looked dead into the boyfriend's eye His Emother was a ghost, too upset to cry, then AmHe took a step toward the man on the ground AmFrom his mouth trickled out a little audible sound DmHe heard the boyfriend shout, "Get out!" And Billy Esaid, "Not till I know what this is all about" Am"Well, this preacher here was attacking your mama" AmBut Billy knew just who was starting the drama DmSo Billy took dead aim at his face And smashed theE bottle on the man who left his dad in disgrace, and AmThe white milk dripped down with the blood, and the AmBoyfriend fell down dead for good Right Dmnext to the preacher who was gasping for air And Billy Eshouted, "Daddy, why'd you have to come back here?" AmHis mama reached behind the sugar and honey, and AmPulled out an envelope filled with money "Your Dmdaddy gave us this," she collapsed in tears "EHe's been paying all the bills for years" Am"Mama, let's put this body underneath the trees Amand put Daddy in the truck and head to Tennessee" DmJust then, his little brother came in Holding the Emilk man's hat and a bottle of gin singing, AmWell now you heard another side to the story But you Cwanna know Bhow it Amends? AmIf you must know, the truth about the tale CGo and Bask the Ammilkman
