Story Behind the Song

This song first popped up in 2004. I had been playing Copperhead Road by Steve Earle for awhile and one day just started fooling with the drop D tuning that I use for my version of the song. I hit the open C chord position and it turned into this neat sou

My sister called me up the other day, to tell me that Daddy had
passed away.
I couldn?t muster a single tear. All I felt was relief, a new life without fear.
It didn?t bother me in the least. I said, ?dig a hole, toss him in and let me rest in peace!?

I don?t need, I don?t need, I don?t, I don?t
I don?t need you backhand love

He was a short man, larger than life. He probably went through three or five wives.
They kind of liked his style, kind of liked his spunk.
He wasn?t too bad until he got drunk.
He used to promise to make me a man, he broke my cheek, broke my heart, broke four bones in my hand.

chorus

I got shot twice in that stupid Asian war. when I landed home I thought I knew the score.
Might makes right, kill ?em all, let God sort out the rest.
If I could take it back I would, I confess.
I don?t know much but I do know this: don?t ever trust a man who teaches lessons with his fist.
