"Ollie Bronson"

They said his name was Ollie Bronson,
A hired hand for Orville Longman

And that every day he drove past my house in his shitty Chevy
His wife was gone, his parents dead, his favorite word was “groovy”

I found boot-scuffs in the kitchen
And bullet-holes and broken pictures

And down the hall, outside my room, that's where I found him
He was full of holes, mouth filled with nails, and his eyes were open

More than scared, he just looked lonesome
His open eyes frozen for someone

Hauled him away, in a body bag, they said dead was heavy
The detective shrugged, and the coroner laughed and said, “Now come and help me.”

They said his name was Ollie Bronson
I found his boot-scuffs in the kitchen
More than scared, he just looked lonesome
His open eyes frozen for someone
