Song Description

Domestic violence. The solution of the wife and kids. He won't like it.

Story Behind the Song

No back story. Just pure craft.

Lyrics

VERSE
He left one Sunday afternoon
She was blue, black, and green
He said he would be returning soon
She was blue, black, and green
This isn't love; she'd had enough
This time the door got locked
This time no one was shocked
That she's blue, black, and green

CHORUS
The colors on her skin tell just part of the story
She was about done in; tired of being his territory
Nothing excuses the bruises on her mind
(Now she's gonna do what she chooses, and he's gonna lose this time)
(Now they're gonna do what they choose, and he's gonna lose this time)

VERSE
The children listen, hear the thunder
Blue, black, and green
People stare at them in wonder
Blue, black, and green
Their eyes just cry; sometimes they fear for their lives
It's wrong, but they're staying strong
And today, they're gonna have their say
About blue, black, and green

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Bravely, they huddled up to talk
They knew, anytime, he'd be coming up the walk
So they made a plan; they'd be taking a stand
And however it ends, at least it will end

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Blue, black, and green
