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 more
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

about

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
