"Hanging By His Hair" as written by and Homer Flynn....
Helpless and hanging around
Inches away from the ground
Where I'm gonna be found
By my father

It's kinda cloudy and gray
Soon they'll be coming my way
Maybe it's better this way
For my father

In front of family and friends
I killed my brother and then
I tried to do it again
To my father

Soon I'm gonna be dead
But I slept on his bed
With his women and said
Fuck you, father

I never thought that I would be
Discovered in a hardwood tree
Hanging by my hair above
A pair of mating turtle doves

    General CommentThis song is about Absalom.

    Book of Samuel 2. Old Testament.

    King David steals Bathsheba from Uriah the Hittite. Then David sends Uriah into the front lines to get him killed, and keep Bathsheba for himself.

    God promises to pay David back for his sins, and do the same to him.

    Amnon rapes his half sister Tamar. Tamar is Absalom's immediate sister. Absalom seeks vengance and murders Amnon at a party.

    Absalom is afraid David will kill him, so he rounds up a rebel army and attacks Jerusalem. Davids army flees Jerusalem and Absalom captures the city. While he is there he sleeps with Davids 10 concubines.

    David sends Joab and the rest of the Israelite army to attack Absalom. The rebel army is routed and as Absalom is fleeing on his donkey he gets his hair caught in an oak tree. While he is dangling there helpless Joab walks up and slays him.
