I Swore That Was a Doe

You know I feel so bad

About what I'd done

The life he coulda had

Before he met my gun

I can’t take it back

It was an accident

I didn’t see the rack

On the top of his head

 

I swore that was a doe

I swore that was a doe

I swore that was a big fat doe

But no no no

I swore that was a doe

But his antlers didn’t show

I swore that was a big fat doe

But wouldn’t you know

I had to bury him in the snow

 

It all happened so fast

Thank God no one saw

And if the CO's ask

I’ll deny it all

I’m not a bad guy

This happens all the time

That’s what we tell ourselves

To help us sleep at night

I swore that was a doe

I swore that was a doe

I swore that was a big fat doe

But no no no

I swore that was a doe

But his anters didn’t show

I swore that was a big fat doe

But wouldn’t you know

I had to bury him in the snow

 

In the snow

If only I had known
