TALL GRASS (Unreleased)

Billy Joe was eager and


He had him an idea


He's take Jenny Sue down to the shore


And based on her decision he


Gave her some religion


And changed both of their lives forevermore



Took a break from the family life


For a drink and a game of pool


With his mean-assed buddy Lee


Who didn't like to lose


Took out a man who


Took their money


Billy Joe thought it would be funny....



CHORUS


Lay him down in the tall grass


Lay him down in the tall grass


Lay him down in the tall grass



BRIDGE



Them flat lands have no secrets


You can see for miles around


And every now and then them folks


Sneak out of that little town



REPEAT CHORUS X 2



INSTRUMENTAL VERSE



Jenny Sue got antsy


And that was her mistake


Lit a smoke and headed  'cross


The far side of the lake


Destiny took hold


Found a body in the sand


Nowhere left to run


Knew Billy Joe had had a hand



CHORUS X 2
