Choctaw County Affair

Album: Storyteller (2015)
  • Ooh
    Well, life's been kind of trippy down here in Mississippi
    Since Cassie O'Grady disappeared
    And me and my Bob Shaver been in all the newspapers
    Every day for naught on a year
    They say we got tangled in a love triangle
    A fatal game of truth or dare

    But the truth remains a mystery and now it's ancient history
    It's a Choctaw County affair
    It's just a Choctaw County affair (Choctaw County affair)
    Well, people talkin' 'bout it everywhere (Choctaw County affair)

    Well, Cassie O'Grady was no Southern lady
    Despite all the media hype
    They all loved to make her out like a sweet little devout
    All-American cheerleader type
    But her mind was cattywampus
    She was greedy, she was pompous
    Strutting 'round with her nose in the air

    She was a cold gold-digger tickling a hand trigger
    It's a Choctaw County affair
    It's just a Choctaw County affair (Choctaw County affair)
    And now they say she's lying dead somewhere (Choctaw County affair)

    Well, I do not deny I wished Cassie would die
    When she threatened us with blackmail
    She said she had some information that would wreck my reputation
    And land Bobby back in jail
    Now it's best to remember Bobby Shaver's got a temper
    Like a buck-shot grizzly bear

    But there's nobody, there's no witness
    So y'all go mind your business
    It's a Choctaw County affair
    It's just a Choctaw County affair (Choctaw County affair)
    Oh, you mess with Bobby and you better beware (Choctaw County affair), yeah yeah yeah
    Hey, yeah

    Well, the press went wild on the day of the trial
    When they put us on the witness stand
    They thought we'd turn on each other, but soon they all discovered
    We were live or die, hand in hand
    And that fancy D.A. from down Jackson way
    Said he'd see us in the electric chair, ha

    But the foreman of the jury told me honey, don't you worry
    It's a Choctaw county affair, yeah
    (Choctaw County affair)
    Yeah, it's just a Choctaw County affair (Choctaw County affair), yeah
    How would you know 'cause you weren't there (Choctaw County affair)
    It's just a Choctaw County affair (Choctaw County affair)
    Mmm, yeah, yeah (Choctaw County affair) Writer/s: Jason White
