Lyrics

Murder in the City
(by Scott Yancey Avett, Timothy Seth Avett)

If I get murdered in the city
Don't go reveng’n in my name
One person dead from such is plenty
No need to go get locked away

When I leave your arms
The things that I think of
No need to get over alarmed
Oh, I'm comin' home

I wonder which one of us is better
Which one our parents loved the most
I sure did get in lots of trouble
They seemed to let the others go

A tear fell from my father's eyes
I wondered what my dad would say
He said I love you and I'm proud of you all
in so many different ways

If I get murdered in the city
Go read the letter in my desk
Don't bother with all my belongings
But pay attention to the list

Make sure my sister knows I loved her
Make sure my mother knows the same
Always remember, there was nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name
Always remember, there was nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name
