The Secret of Samuel McGee

This is a story of Samuel McGee
Who murdered his brother Elijah
In a house on a hill at the end of the street
With a bullet made out of steel
Time to head for the hills

When they found the body
They questioned the girl
For they knew that Samuel had loved her
She was the daughter of preacher McGill
And was sharing a bed with Sam's brother
A secret that Samuel discovered

Hey everyone, this is my gun
and my name is Samuel McGee
She broke my heart and I shot my kin with a bullet that buried me

In that fateful house at the end of the street
Was Sam's brother and bride-to-be
Samuel came in at a quarter-to-three
There was a shout
Then a shot rang out

Now Samuel is hanging for murder, you see
They found the gun and came looking
That bullet of steel stole his good name away
And his blood went cold
Now his story's been told...

Hey everyone, this is my gun
And my name is Samuel McGee
She broke my heart and I shot my kin with a bullet that buried me
