Sweet Charlene McGray Pretty as a posie in the springtime She would twirl around all day Get dizzy and she'd fall down in a haze And the country breeze passed slowly as I went to her I knocked upon her solid wooden door But her father, he just looked at me and said "leave or I'll call the law" So I cut her pa in half with a chainsaw She always had a way Of giving all the neighbor boys sensations They would close their eyes and pray That their Christian God would lead them from temptation But her mama didn't want that girl to grow up And end up with a heathen like myself Well, she always tried to tell Charlene about my little flaws So I cut her ma in half with a chainsaw And now sweet Charlene McGray She's all mine, there's nothing to divide us On that sunny day in May It was time to ask that girl to be my bride So I got down on one knee and took her finger And I said to her, "Charlene, will you be mine?" But she just kept complaining that I killed her ma and pa So I cut Charlene in half with a chainsaw
