Murder tonight in the trailer park
Mrs. Annabelle Evans found
With her throat cut after dark
Her pockets turned inside out
Her dresser drawers turned upside down
Anna's neighbor Peg, identifies the body
Lets out a hollow kind of sound

Homicide is tying yellow ribbons
Around her silver AirStream
Red cherries slashing up the night
Cutting through that cordoned crime scene

There's been a murder
In the trailer park tonight

Murder tonight in the trailer park
Pack your things, Ann Marie
We're heading west
We're going to make a fresh start
I've been saving pennies
Been looking forward to this day
No time for questions are you coming
Or are you going to stay?

Crosstown at the Waterton
George Evans is sitting tall and tight
Buying drinks for all the regulars
Bragging about how them bones
Danced for him tonight

There's been a murder
In the trailer park tonight

Murder tonight in the trailer park
Faceless man counting crumpled bills
Hotel neon fights the dark
TV set in the corner, they're talking murder
On the late-night news
He turns down the sound
Waits for the sports
He only wants to know
Did I win or did I lose?

There's been a murder
In the trailer park tonight
Murder in the trailer park
There's been a murder
In the trailer park tonight, yeah yeah

There's been a murder
In the trailer park
Murder yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
There's been a murder
In the trailer park tonight, tonight
