"One More Suicide" as written by and John K. Wozniak....
Christopher O'Malley
Went out on a bridge
Down in Chehalis
And clutching his bible
And a letter from her
Fell into the river
Pity no one was there
No angels in the air
And the morning paper ran
One more suicide
His mama stayed by
The river side
Down in Chehalis
And clutching her bible
And a letter from him
Fell into crying
Pity no one was there
No angels in the air
And the morning paper ran
One more suicide
Pity no one was there
No angels in the air
And the morning paper ran
One more suicide
One more suicide
One more suicide

    General CommentThis song is so folksy, but the subject is just damn depressing. The narrative about a man killing himself and his mother giving up is chilling. Good song.

    General CommentWhen I was in kindergarten there was a kid in my class....I don't remember a whole lot about him, but I remember him always sitting by himself during lunch and movie time, that kind of stuff. Well he and his family moved after that one year I knew him...I don't remember where to...but a few years ago the kids that were in his class that still went to school here all got called to the office. They told us when we got up there that he had killed himself, and they told us the date of the service and what not. Granted I never really knew him, this song makes me think about him.
