"Kevin Was My Cousin" written by Rob Lamothe (Warner Chappell Music International/ASCAP) performed by Rob Lamothe, recorded live at The Grooveyard, Rochester, New York, USA 12/23/00

lyrics

kevin was my cousin... he was 22 my mother's little brother's son
killed last night in clarksville him and three girls
never hurt no one

shot down in cold blood for two hundred dollars
that's fifty dollars a life
that's four young people from four good families
four thousand mor tears to cry

there are some things won't be forgiven
there is some blood will not wash away
there's a shadow on the living
it will not go away

give me a room and the boy that pulled the trigger
four empty hands - mine
and his

just me and my anger - him and his ignorance
and we will see just how tough he is

there are some things won't be forgiven
there is some blood will not wash away

there's a shadow on the living it will not go away
