Lyrics

Wrongly Convicted

I know you won’t believe it
But I really didn’t mean it
And you know that I’m feelin’ real sad
It must be lookin’ like I’m a really hurtin’ for me it’s a lookin’ real bad

‘Cause she was sittin’ right there in the web she’d spun
Injectin’ her venom ‘n runnin’ her tongue
But I swear I’m an innocent man
I’ve been wrongly… convicted…

I swear I know she’s gonna be missed
And the kids they’re gonna be pissed
Cuz the ricochet hit the old fat dog
I Thought I’d checked it, I’m never that reckless, but I musta left the safety off

As she was sittin’ right there in the web she’d spun
Injectin’ her venom ‘n runnin’ her tongue
But I swear that I’m an innocent man
I’ve been wrongly… convicted…

Murder in the first degree
Is the charge that they put on me
And when that Judges gavel finally fell
They gonna send me away, to rot until my dyin’ day, I’m gonna spend my life in jail

‘Cause she was sittin’ right there in the web she’d spun
Injectin’ her venom ‘n runnin’ her tongue
But I swear that I’m an innocent man
I’ve been wrongly… convicted… Again…

(He was just cleanin’ the gun and the gun went off)
That’s right! I was just cleanin’ the gun and the damn thing went off
(He was just cleanin’ the gun and the gun went off)
so what! that doesn’t make it entirely my fault
(He was just cleanin’ the gun and the gun went off)
Yeah, so, maybe I had to reload after 5 or 6 shots
(He was just cleanin’ the gun and the gun went off)
if the F’n jury knew her like I knew her they wouldn’t have convicted!
(He was just cleanin’ the gun and the gun went off)
At least she died doing what she loved… bitchin’
(He was just cleanin’ the gun and the gun went off)
