This boy named Eddie used to set the fields on fire
He's the only one I know who dared to name his desire
In a county where the dairy men all had milking machines
Eddie was the only one to separate the cream

Eddie and his father let the cows come home
They were out in the pasture in a late summer storm
When out of the blue, a lightning bolt came down
And where his father stood, smoking bones lay on the ground

Eddie Bonebrake

His father's remains lie in the Kelsey Cemetery
But dogs like to dig up the bones that we bury
You can burn a field but you cannot burn the sky
That took your father from you in the twinkling of an eye

But you can burn a field and send clouds of black smoke
Up into the heavens, praying God will choke
And now you know the story and you know it was not me
Or my friend who did it, it was that boy named Eddie
