In The Hole
Lyrics by Kathleen Dunbar, music by Kathleen Dunbar and Gawain Mathews
Copyrighted by Kathleen Dunbar and Gawain Mathews

all gone
the life you had before
she called your name
stood with her hand on the door
she lay
sweet and warm in her bed
he won’t know
my husband is gone so she said

was it love
was it love that made you burn
old news
you’re yesterday’s page that she turned
her perfume
wet and warm on her skin
done with you
ohh she beckons to him

lay, lay it down, lay it in the bone
hey, now you’re goin on alone

hangin round
her place outside of town
she comes laughin
her gold hair fallin all around
she told you no
and looked you up and down
so you shot her
laid her body
in the cold, cold ground

no mercy for you
you still hear her callin
an angel of light
in darkness has fallen
with the spell of her body
to hell she bound you
you remember all your days
her golden hair all around you

in the hole
in the hole put it down and die
got a secret
want to tell but you can’t say why
you talk about her
guess that woman moved on
your friends are laughin
say how she liked her fun

lay, lay it down, lay it in the bone
hey, now you’re goin on alone

there’s a hound
there’s a gold haired hound comin through
out of hell
with the white teeth catches you
no one knows
the thing that you did do
but every night
in your dreams you must tell what is true

no mercy for you
you still hear her callin
an angel of light
in darkness has fallen
with the spell of her body
to hell she bound you
you remember all your days
her golden hair all around you
OOHs

about

Kathleen Dunbar San Francisco, California

You may notice my songs are about angels and devils, birth, life, death, about creation and crumbling destruction—the troubles we humans get ourselves into and the choices we make—some of them funky, some of them ending in the dark, others rising into the light of morning. Touching, humorous, spellbinding storytelling—my songs brings you into the irony, the tragedy, and the possibilities of life. ... more
