Lyrics to

Cutter's Down

Eddie Cutter came back a mess.  Folks said he just couldn't handle the stress

Sent to a land so far away, he'd never even heard of before that day

Put him down in the cold, cold ground.  Put him down he's got no life

Put him down in the cold, cold ground.  Say mercy Jesus to his wife

Got into fights just trying to have some fun.  Even shot the sheriff with his own gun

He wrestled with demons against his life.  Till he got his comeuppance against a great big knife

Put him down in the cold, cold ground.  Put him down he's got no life

Put him down in the cold, cold ground.  Say mercy Jesus to his wife

Eddie Cutter was once a smiling tyke.  Full of love and full of life

They took away his dreams and  hope.  And he looked for them in his dope

Put him down in the cold, cold ground.  Put him down he's got no life

Put him down in the cold, cold ground.  Say mercy Jesus to his wife

Life goes on though he won't be here.  Some folks breathe easier but they won't cheer

He left a gap in their plans that day.  But just the same, well anyway

Put  him down in the cold, cold ground.  Put him down he's got no life

Put him down in the cold, cold ground.  Say mercy Jesus to his wife

Say mercy Jesus...to his wife
