You're like a bad taste that just won't leave my mouth
Like one too many whiskeys that got me nowhere but south
So I drug you to the graveyard and bent my shovel with your head
I woke this morning and found you 'tween the sheets of my bed

Shot ya (shot ya), hanged ya (hanged ya), drowned ya, cut ya, strangled ya
No matter how hard I try, you just keep coming back to life
Shot ya (shot ya), hanged ya (hanged ya), drowned ya, cut ya, strangled ya
No matter how hard I try, girl, you just keep coming back to life

You're like a pale moon that refuses to set
Like a bill collector that comes when you've long since paid your bet
This time it's gonna happen, I been thinkin' ahead
Gonna stand over your grave 'til I know that you're dead

Shot ya (shot ya), hanged ya (hanged ya), drowned ya, cut ya, strangled ya
No matter how hard I try, you just keep coming back to life
Shot ya (shot ya), hanged ya (hanged ya), drowned ya, cut ya, strangled ya
No matter how hard I try, girl, you just keep coming back to life

I dug the ditch, I threw you in
I threw the dirt on your head
I packed that dirt real tight, but
You just keep coming back to life
