In that mansion on the hill
He held back his urge to kill
Mama had a secret not so easy to explain
And the story she told done drove her boy insane

From the time that she confessed
He made his plans to leave the west
Plans are made, plans fall through
Mice and men to what they have to do

Woo woo

He'd never shot a gun before
Yeah, but he knew what a gun is for
He practiced everyday, what he was gonna say
When he pulled his Kimber and blew that man away

In an eastern seaport town
That's where he tracked the old man down
Blood began to pool, lights began to fade
No one warned him daddy was so good with the blade

In her mansion on the hill
His mama cries as the air goes chill
In a pine box on a boxcar, she had his body blessed
And her bastard son was buried in the west
In the west
