Ballad Of The Hatfields And McCoys

©2013 Robert Randall Burke



In the hills they tell the story
To all the girls and boys
Of the war on the Tug River
And the Hatfields and McCoys.

Devil Anse, he was a Hatfield
Hardened by the Civil War
Ran'l McCoy, was even harder
And on revenge he swore.

Down along the borderline
I kill yours an' you kill mine
The killin' lasted more than thirty years
Now Johnse's gone and old Jim Vance
And they'll be hangin' Devil Anse
The river overflows with widow's tears.

Well they took them three young Hatfields
Tied 'em to a Pawpaw tree
And when the smoke had settled
The McCoys had set 'em free.

Down along the borderline
I kill yours an' you kill mine
The killin' lasted more than thirty years
Now Johnse's gone and old Jim Vance
And they'll be hangin' Devil Anse
The river overflows with widow's tears.

In the hills they tell the story
To all the girls and boys
Of the war on the Tug River
And the Hatfields and McCoys.

Down along the borderline
I kill yours an' you kill mine
The killin' lasted more than thirty years
Now Johnse's gone and old Jim Vance
And they'll be hangin' Devil Anse
The river overflows with widow's tears
That river overflows with widow's tears.

Thanks, floyd. You seem to hold a minority opinion.

Hey Bob

What a great start to my Saturday morning! This is truly excellent. As Floyd says, "Outstanding! Great lyric!!! and tracks, and mix, and vocal". The only thing I can add to that is that the arrangement is also exceptional. To my ears, this song has "success" written all over it.

You'd better add me to the same minority as Floyd!

All the best,
Noel

Very sweet... I love these story songs. I assume you recently watched the mini-series, as I did, and you have captured it very nicely. I particularly like the chorus.

We just watched the Kevin Costner one - I think that was a miniseries. I got my middle name from Randall McCoy - a distant ancestor. Never done kilt any Hatfields though.

And an excellent little ditty it is. I love the line "The river overflows with widow's tears". Sounds great Bob.

Outstanding, Bob.

I always like your songs, but this has to be one of the best things you've done. Couldn't find fault with anything! Very, very professional mix.

Hi Darren and welcome to the forums.

This is the section for songs done with PG products like Band in a Box (BiaB). Start a new thread for each song and try to provide some information as to how it was recorded.

Any queries about how to use the program should go in either the BiaB forum or the RealBand (RB) forum. General queries or comments go in the Off-topic section.

The profile pictures can be a problem - use an editing program to keep reducing the size until it gets accepted.

Looking forward to hearing your first song.

ROG.
