Lyrics for my Dead teen song webpage.
"The Kids Aren't Alright" The Offspring When we were young the future was so bright The old neighborhood was so alive And every kid on the whole damn street Was gonna make it big and not be beat Now the neighborhood's cracked and torn The kids are grown up but their lives are worn How can one little street Swallow so many lives Chances thrown Nothing's free Longing for What used to be Still it's hard Hard to see Fragile lives Shattered dreams Jamie had a chance, well she really did Instead she dropped out and had a couple o' kids Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job He just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot Jay committed suicide Brandon OD'd and died What the hell is going on The cruelest dream, reality Chances thrown Nothing's free Longing for What used to be Still it's hard Hard to see Fragile lives Shattered dreams
The Knoxville Girl - Traditional ballad I met a little girl in Knoxville, A town you all know well, And every Sunday evening Down in her home I'd dwell. We went to take an evening walk About a mile from town. I picked a stick up off the ground And knocked that fair girl down. She fell down on her bended knees, For mercy she did cry, "Oh, Willie, Dear, don't kill me here I'm not prepared to die." She never spoke another word - I only beat her more, Until the ground around me Within her blood did flow. I took her by her golden curls And dragged her round and round. I threw her in the river That flows through Knoxville town. Go down, go down, you Knoxville girls With the dark and shining eyes. Go there, go there, you Knoxville girl - You can never be my bride. I lit for me a candle, to light my way to bed. I got for me a pillow, to rest my weary head. The police came down from Knoxville And placed me in a jail. My friends could not get pardon Nor could they go my bail. I'm here to waste my life away Down in this dreary old cell, Because I killed that Knoxville girl, The girl I loved so well.
