Digger Dave was a friend of mine
Got himself into a bit of a mess one time
Minding his business, drinking his wine
When he heard a shotgun blast
It wasn’t anything he hadn’t heard before
But then that girl Christine came crying through his door,
Screaming, “Yukon Jack told me to get rid of this thing fast.”

Yukon Jack and Digger Dave sounds
Like a couple of names that I might have just made up
But I’m telling you this is the truest story I tell
She set down the gun, took off running
Digger Dave followed and soon come up on that deathwish kid from Michigan
He was laying there shot up all to hell
He had a deathwish since they come up from the lower 48
And they’ll all been drinking vodka for two days straight
When the fistfight started, it was already too late
For anyone to keep any peace
No one could remember what the fight was about,
But all accounts, the kid pulled the first gun out
Self defense beyond the shadow of a doubt
Is what they all agreed to tell the police

Digger Dave said, “No, y’all are your own with this”
Walked over to AJ’s and drank himself pissed
Cop yellow tape was strung out all over the place
When he finally come walking back out
A victim of circumstance, if ever there was one
Last time I saw him, he said that he had just done
A year and a half for what he called
Letting that crazy bitch into his house

Got a new song about it, though
Sang it for me behind the closet
Said, “Crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues
I never should have let her into my house

Crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues
I got the crazy woman blues
I never should have let her into my house

Only one way to know how far is just far enough
You gotta go a little bit too far, and then back up
Back up, and hope hard luck ain’t on your side
The town council had already planned to meet
About all the drinkin’ and druggin’ down there on Brunell street
Met a little too late, I guess, at least for that kid that died

Crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues
I never should have let her into my house

I got the crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues
Crazy woman blues
I never should have let her in the house
