lyrics

Some say I'm rotten or just plain mean
That I lost my mind when I turned fourteen
All because I burned the general store
Killed my old man and his dirty whore
There ain't shit to do in my hometown
Now there's a polecat in the henhouse
And the farmer ain't around

They locked me up in the crazy house
It's a vicious game of cat and mouse
Made me work them puzzles and do them drills
Ate my weight in goofy pills
Like drinking 'shine 'til you think you'll drown
Now there's a polecat in the henhouse
And the farmer ain't around

When I turned eighteen they set me free
They just as well have found a hanging tree
Pretty pink panties drying on the line
Made my hands all itchy, my thoughts all mine
I'll be out of Dodge before the sun goes down
Now there's a polecat in the henhouse
And the farmer ain't around

Mrs. Brown flicked the porch light on
There was a knock on her door at the break of dawn
I was selling encyclopedias
That's what I told her, she believed I was
She was breathing heavy in her cotton gown
Now there's a polecat in the henhouse
And the farmer ain't around

I heard the hammer then the trigger click
The room started spinning and my shirt got slick
The stars went dark and the sky went black
I woke up tied to the railroad track
Now the 4:19 is bearing down
There was a polecat in the henhouse
But so was Farmer Brown
