"Ballad of Lonnie Wolf" as written by and Dowd....
Shot himself at the trailer park
Couple of hours before it got dark
He did not die, he's paralyzed
Can't even wipe the tears from his eyes

He was playing harp, a lonesome tune
That drove everyone from the room
Pulled his gun from beneath the pillow
He put the barrel up against his temple

Oh Lonnie, you made a big mistake

Now he's in the V.A. hospital
A victim of life's ancient riddle
Tried to die, but he was codemned to give
Death's a gift only God can give

Blink an eye, squeeze a hand
Life stretches out like the desert sand
He got in a hurry, couldn't wait
Lonnie's character sealed his fate

Oh Lonnie, you made a big mistake

Little girl in the next room
She'll be a grown up pretty soon
In her heart there's a broken place
Shattered just like her daddy's fac

Big mistake
