Well goodbye world
It's sad but true
Got a date with the hangman
I have to leave you
I shot my Darlin'
Three times of more
The reason I'm goin'
Is blood on the floor

The nights are so lonely
The days are so long
I'm in the jailhouse
'Cause they say I've done wrong
I don't say I'm sorry
I just say I'm sore
The reason I'm goin'
Is blood on the floor (blood on the floor)

Well I came home one night
She were lyin'
With her legs around
Another mans bod
She saw me, stared laughin'
But she cried, when she saw my gun

Goodbye world
I guess we must part
They're taking my life
Cause I shot my sweetheart
I don't say I'm sorry
I just say I'm sore
The reason I'm goin'
Is blood on the floor
Oh the reason I'm goin'
Is blood on the floor
Oh the reason I'm goin'
Is the blood on the floor

    My InterpretationOne of my least favorite songs, by this, my favorite band. It's not that the lyrics are bad (though they are clichéd) but Spencer's mocking Elvis impression is enough to make you sick. Anyway, the song is a murder ballad, common in folk rock. It's about a guy about to be hung for the murder of his adulterous girlfriend.
