Who Carried You

 

From a cajun diner to Carolina

Sick in the mornin' to see the town doctor

Life and Agatha Christie in a trailway

Back from New Orleans

Who dunnit, who carried you

 

From the church yard to the liquor store

From the clothes line clean out the door

Life and Agatha Christie in a trailway

Back from New Orleans

Who dunnit, who carried you

 

            Thelma Marie, three boys love Pearl and Gene

            From fifty-nine to heaven

            Left thirty-seven years oh Lord

            Who dunnit, who carried you

 

Remember sittin' on a lap

Smellin' listerine in black and white 

Might be a fada TV, or a fleetline to the A&P

Who dunnit, who carried you

 

            Thelma Marie, three boys love Pearl and Gene

            From fifty-nine to heaven

            Left thirty-seven years oh Lord

            Who dunnit, who carried you

 

From a cajun diner to Carolina

Sick in the mornin' to see the town doctor

Life and Agatha Christie in a trailway

Back from New Orleans

Who dunnit, who carried you
