"First There Was" as written by and John Dowd....
I came into town
I was looking for a job
I couldn’t find nothin'
So I started looking for someone to rob

I took my ski mask
And I put it over my face
Walked into the feed store
And I shot everyone in the place

First there was a funeral and
Then there was a trial
Hung me in a courtyard and
They let me hang up there a while
Let me hang up there a while

I bought a new shirt
So soft to touch
And a new pair of beetle boots
They didn’t cost me too much

I went to the movies
I couldn’t get a date
Women on the silver screen
Are the only ones to which I can relate

First there was a funeral and
Then there was a trial
Hung me in a courtyard and
They let me hang up there a while
Let me hang up there a while

My eyes got heavy
I fell asleep
Usher came by and said
"Get outta here you creep"

I pulled out my .38
I blew him away
If you disrespect me
That’s the price you’ll pay

First there was a funeral and
Then there was a trial
Hung me in a courtyard and
They let me hang up there a while
Let me hang up there a while
