Colter Wall - Kate McCannon lyrics

Well the raven is a wicked bird His wings are black as sin And he floats outside my prison window Mocking those within And he sings to me real low It’s hell to where you go For you did murder Kate McCannon When I first met Tom McCannon I was working in the mines Said he had himself a dark haired daughter With long, green eyes When she and I did meet She was bathing in the creek Prettiest girl in the whole damn holler That ain’t no lie So I went a courtin’ Kate McCannon Got me a job and I quit my ramblin’ And every day I’d save A quarter of my pay I could buy a diamond ring Lord and one day I come home to find My darlin’ angel’s not inside So I made for the creek Where she and I did meet And found her with some other lover And I put three rounds into Kate McCannon
