Ever Since The Day (Trapper Chris)

When the stranger came to town We treated him with hate He rubbed it right back in our face So two teenage boys would race For a twenty dollar bet And to claim who would be great So we all skipped our last class To see our hero face the fool Start their engines, press the gas Lord, may our hero make it through This chilly autumn day And they sky all black and blue But he last thing that we saw Ws our hero drive right off the hill His car went rolling into flames He gave his life away For a twenty dollar bet And to sanctify his fate As we all were walking home Shell-shocked and immune We kicked dirt up with our shoes There was nothing else to do And ever since the day We’ve never been the same Hollow and afraid Ever since the day
