Perfume, Powder and Lead
Tabbed by Jason Tenney


We were married in the spring, she didn't want for anything
G                           D        G
A lovin' husband, a little cabin, close to town
Workin' hard out on the farm, comin' in to all her charm
G                       D         G
Until one day, when the stranger came around

It starts to rain can't work no more, run to the porch open the door
G                   D                  G
To their surprise I realize their little game
So what was I supposed to do, oh I could tell he'd been with you
G                         D              G
It made me mad and I just couldn't stand the pain

       C                           G                                             
I can't believe what I have done, I killed them both with daddy's gun
G                   D               G
As their bodies lay entangled in our bed
    C                             G
He was the sheriffs only son, to me she was the only one
G                         D              G
I smelled the perfume, the powder and the lead

Well my body starts to shake, begin to think about my fate
G                      D                  G
As I turn and start to stagger toward the door
I heard her take her final breath, I knew my sentence would be death
G                           D                 G
And so I threw that smokin' gun onto the floor

Now I sit here in this jail, and now my life's a livin hell
G                        D               G
Since that awful dreadful crime I had to do
All her love she vowed to me, another man there'd never be
G                          D                 G
And in the end I'll have to die for loving you


I can't believe what I have done…
