"Every Mother's Son" as written by and Chris Smither....
I speak to you. I think you'll
Understand. You know you've
Made your son Joseph
A dangerous man.
He's gone to town, he's bought himself a gun.
This could happen to every mother's son.

I spoke to Joseph.
His time has come.
"Vengeance is mine," he said.
"Come join the fun."
He looked more like a Judas on the run.
This could happen to every mother's son.

Since I spoke to Joseph he's
Gone into town. He killed
Six strong men 'fore they
Shot him down.
I hate to think it's only just begun.
This could happen to every mother's son.

Something to tell you I
Think you should know.
You think too fast and you
Love too slow, you know.
You needn't feel you're the only one.
This could happen to every mother's son.
