Drive By Truckers – Drag The Lake Charlie

A deeply twisted tale indeed from one of my favorite bands.

Drag the lake, Charlie
Charlie, drag the lake
Lester didn’t come home last night
And Wanda’s all irate

Better keep your fingers crossed
And hope we find him drowned
Wanda’s gonna come and kill us all
If he shows up in town

Wanda’s got that goddamn
Pistol in her purse
If she goes on the rampage
They’ll have to call the hearse

Better drag the lake, Charlie
Charlie, drag the lake
Remember what happened last time
When Lester went on the lake?

I heard it took the cleaning crew
Two weeks to clean the bar
They never found that teenage girl
They never found the car
