The old man is crying and he's lying
The blood on his hands (is) from his wife
Oh Lucy your mother is crying in the sky
Lucy where am i ?

They took me away from the (crime) scene
Removing the gun from my fingers
Oh Lucy your daddy is not the culprit
Now "home" in a cold cell

Dance all people i hold the gun, connected to my own self
Well Mrs. Ness is lying in a pool of blood
How could she do this to me

Lucy dear your mother just ended herself, she's on the way
Tell her that i love but don't forgive the thing she did

Well love has it's own way of coping
The sadness took over her feelings
Oh Lucy the loss of her girl made her blind
3 are now (left) behind

Dance all people i hold the gun, connected to my own self
Well Mrs. Ness is lying in a pool of blood
How could she do this to me

Lucy dear your mother just ended herself, she's on the way
Tell her that i love but don't forgive the thing she did
Overloaded with anger that heals no soul
Just a grieving home

    General CommentI don't know why, but the line:

    Lucy dear your mother just ended herself, she's on the way

    I always sung it as "Lucy dear, you're mother just hung herself, she's on her way

    Good song ^^

    General CommentThis song seems to be connected to Volbeat's other song, "Mary Ann's Place". In that song, the singer is at the grave of Mary Ann, which is right next to Lucy's grave.

    Then in this song, you hear that Lucy's and Mary Ann's mother, Mrs. Ness just killed herself, presumably because she couldn't deal with the fact that her two daughters were dead. Now Mr. Ness has been arrested on the assumption that he killed his wife.

    This then, could lead into another song by Volbeat, "Sad Man's Tongue", in which Mr. Ness is said to be "sitting my time" in jail, pondering over all that he has been through in life.

    Lyric Correction"Tell her that i love but don't forgive the thing she did"

    should be:

    "Tell her that I love her but don't forgive teh shing she did"

    Added 'her' after 'that I love'..

    Song MeaningThis song follows on from the song "Danny & Lucy (11 pm)" from the album The Strength / The Sound / The Songs.

    It tells the story of a Father having previously lost his Daughter, now lost his Wife (whether to suicide or murdered by the father it is unclear). He looks to his Daughter in heaven, telling her that her Mother is on her way to join her and that he is not responsible for his actions but is sorry.
