"The Other Shoe" as written by Aaron Maurice Miller, Nate J Campany, Joshua Crosby and Antonio Dewayne Boleyjack....
One old brown shoe falls in slow motion
And the bedsprings hover right above your head
As bed springs do, when you're beneath them
Someone else just climbed into your bed

By the time she thought you'd probably got to Phoenix
She'd arranged for your shoes to be filled
Well, you've got your pride and a blue-steel '45
Waited for the other shoe to fall
And you waited for the other shoe to fall

Dig a double grave out in the meadow
And you'll curse the rain that turns the dirt to mud
You'll take 35 south towards Laredo
And you'll try to find a doctor that'll prescribe an elixir
That'll make everything better except your late wife and her lover

By the time she thought you'd probably got to Phoenix
She'd sealed her fate and gotten herself killed
You've got your pride and a blue-steel '45
Waited for the other shoe to fall
And you waited for the other shoe to fall
And you waited for the other shoe to fall

    General Commentvery straight forward here, but a great story told in a great way, a suspicious lover tells his girl he is going to phoenix but instead hides underneath his own bed, with just his pride and his pistol, waiting for the 'other shoe to fall', meaning his lovers adulterer's shoes. he proceeds to kill both his lover and his lover's lover and the rest is the results of his actions, he has to bury the two, take off south and 'try to find a doctor who can prescribe an elixir that'll make everything better
    'Cept your late wife and her lover'. a very powerful narrative in my opinion.
