      Tom Waits - Murder In The Red Barn Música y Letra

      There was a murder in the red barn
      Murder in the red barn
      
      The trees are bending over
      The cows are lying down
      The atumn's taking over
      You can hear the buckshot hounds
      The watchman said to Reba the loon
      Was it pale at Manzanita
      Or Blind Bob the raccoon?
      Pin it on a drifter
      They sleep beneath the bridge
      One plays the violin
      And sleeps inside a fridge
      There was a murder in the red barn
      A murder in the red barn
      
      Someone's crying in the woods
      Someone's burying all his clothes
      Now Slam the Crank from Wheezer
      Slept outside last night and froze
      Road kill has its seasons
      Just like anything
      It's possums in the autumn
      And it's farm cats in the spring
      There was a murder in the red barn
      A murder in the red barn
      
      Now thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house
      Or covet thy neighbor's wife
      But for some
      Murder is the only door through which they enter life
      
      Now they surrounded the house
      They smoke him out
      They took him off in chains
      The sky turned black and bruised
      And we had months of heavy rains
      Now the raven's nest in the rotted roof
      Of Chenoweth's old place
      And no one's asking Cal
      About that scar upon his face
      'Cause there's nothin' strange
      About an axe with bloodstains in the barn
      
      There's always some killin'
      You got to do around the farm
      A murder in the red barn
      Murder in the red barn
      
      Now the woods will never tell
      What sleeps beneath the trees
      Or what's buried 'neath a rock
      Or hiding in the leaves
      'Cause road kill has it's seasons
      Just like anything
      It's possums in the atumn
      And it's farm cats in the spring
      A murder in the red barn
      A murder in the red barn
      
      Now a lady can't do ntohin'
      Without folks' tongues waggin'
      Is this blood on the tree
      Or is it autumn's red blaze
      When the ground's soft for diggin'
      ANd the rain will bring all this gloom
      There's nothing wrong with a lady
      Drinking alone in her room
      But there was a murder in the red barn
      A murder in the red barn
