Story

Lyrics

Falling Water River’s where they took the plunge They were jumping off the bridge- the boys were just having some fun The others stood and waited as the water filled his lungs They didn’t know He hit a rock below He would never show. Oh… in Tennessee Oh… in Tennessee It didn’t happen to you It didn’t happen to me It happened in Tennessee There’s a wooden cross near the highway where Marcie died Out by Highway 40, eastbound side It was on Easter weekend, they were just taking a ride It came out of nowhere Somebody crossed the line There’s no place to hide You can search your Bible for the perfect verse You can shake your fist and you can shout a curse Send a token sigh to the universe You can choose your God Get down on your knees Fold your hands Pray for an answer please But wherever God was that day I think it’s safe to say It wasn’t in Tennessee He was a preacher and she was his wife Everybody who knew them said they were very nice But something snapped inside and she took his life Shotgun in the back Go tell the kids to pack There’s no turning back
