When Davey dropped dead the paper said he was a football hero
Kids all cried and the rumors died and before he was in the ground
Jimmy was up on the strip job, sucking another one down

When Vicky got out it took about a week to catch the fever
Went across town to Doctor Brown beggin' for some pain pills

Chorus:
Pain pills, a little bit of hurt is surely gonna kill a lotta good people in these here hillsLord won't you save us from these old pain pills

When Hazel Jean died, her mother tried to say it was pneumonia
The minister's wife told a bold-faced lie to protect her daughter's name
When half of the congregation was hooked on the very same thing

When Tommy caught wind that his Uncle Tim was about to die from cancer
Went to his house and broke the door down tryin' to steal some pain pills

Chorus

The girl next door's on the bathroom floor
Thinkin' 'bout taking her a little bit more
Ain't never been this bad before

Enough of these pain pills, pain pills
A little bit of hurt is surely gonna kill a lotta good people
in these here hills
Oh Lord, won't you save us from these old pain pills
