16 Easy Songs for Drill & Banjo -  Melissa

i called my best friend
i said “john, i need a favor
that young man my daughter is dating
is behaving badly toward her
he strikes her cheek
he sells her dope
so bring round your four wheel drive
and i’ll bring a rope
we’ll find that young man
i know just where he’ll be
we’ll drive him to a park
and tie him to the trunk of a tree
you throw the first punch
and i’ll throw the second
together we’ll teach
that young man a lesson”
you’re not to go near
melissa again
you think you’re hurtin’ now
but you don’t know the pain
you have caused
my family
i’m telling you cause
Melissa won’t listen to me
you’re not to go near
Melissa again

so john and i did
just like john and i planned
and tied to the trunk of a tree
was my daughter’s young man
i almost pitied him
nobody is born bad
i saw a little of me in him
and that made me mad
so i took out this pistol
and i took aim
i’d do it all differently
if i could do it again

never go near Melissa again
you think you’re hurtin’ now
but you don’t know the pain
you have caused me
and my family
never go near
Melissa again
