It ain’t the swarming rays of heat that last all day and half the night
It ain’t the boiling devil’s moon or the evil in your bloodshot eyes…

It ain’t the way you hold your guns, it ain’t the way my mama died
It ain’t the howling ‘round the tomb we did beneath the winter sky…

It ain’t the demon dogs of plague, it ain’t the dark and endless sea
In driving down and riding back I found the vampire spike for me

She went away, ain’t never coming back

She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone

I’ve seen her taking cowboys home and I’ve seen them teaching her to ride
Her mind is changed, her heart is cold, her body is frozen up inside

Once I kissed her honey hair and asked her will you be my bride
She smiled beneath my ‘coon skin cap, shivering and naked by my side

She went away, ain’t never coming back

She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone

If this old house ever turns color it will surely turn to black
For the sweetheart to me ain’t coming back
Through this lonely world I stumble, my memories are crumpled
Pictures of you, pictures of you
All I’ve got is pictures of you

It ain’t the fallout in the air or the silver autumn sky
It ain’t the bats that fill the air when twilight comes, the cows to die…

She went away, ain’t never coming back

It ain’t the way your lover’s hair is pulled and tangled as she screams
The way her soldier’s body falls, dead and mangled in my dreams

She went away, ain’t never coming back

She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone

So I’m giving you this horse hair bow, my violin to play no more
I’m leaving for the lands of snow for to mourn forever more

She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone
She’s gone, she’s gone, she’s gone, daddy she’s gone
