Perfume Powder And Lead  
Recorded by Lonesome River Band
Written by Tommy Morse

We were married in the spring she didn't want for anything
D7 G
A lovin' husband a little cabin close to town

Workin' hard out on the farm comin' in to all her charm
D7 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
D7 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
D7 G
It made me mad and I just couldn't stand the pain

I can't believe what I have done I killed them both with daddy's gun
D7 G
As their bodies lay entangled in our bed
He was the sheriffs only son to me she was the only one
D7 G
I smelled the perfume the powder and the lead

Well my body starts to shake begin to think about my fate
D7 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
D7 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
D7 G
Since that awful dreadful crime I had to do

All her love she vowed to me another man there'd never be
D7 G
And in the end I'll have to die for loving you

Repeat #3
