"Eddie" as written by and Michelle Shocked....
This boy named Eddie
Used to set the fields on fire
He's the only boy I know who dared to name his desire
In a county where the dairymen all had milking machines
Yeah, Eddie was the only one to separate the cream
Eddie and his father let the cows come home
They was out in the pasture in a late summer storm
When out of the blue a lightning bolt came down
And where his father stood, now smoking bones lay on the ground
Eddie Bonebreak

His father's remains lie in the Kelsey Cemetery
Ah but you know, dogs like to dig up the bones that we bury
Well now, you can burn a field but you cannot burn the sky
That took your father from you in the twinkling of an eye
But you can burn a field
You can send clouds of black smoke
Up into the heavens praying God will choke
And now you know my story
And you know it was not me or my friend who did it
It was that boy named Eddie
Oh Eddie Bonebreak
