lyrics

Seen a con man dangle from a hangman's hitch
And an altar boy strangled at a fever pitch
Seen a man named Jones with a drowned man's bloat
Caught his lover's bones neath a buzzard's throat

And they say it started once I rolled in

Seen a fistful of dollars cost a man his head
And a wealthy scholar stab his wife in their bed
Saw a star crossed bride lose the blush in her cheek
When her groom had died at the mouth of a creek

And they say it started once I rolled in

What they've all failed to see
There lies a common thread
Stranger in blood is me
Rearing my death's head

Seen a zealot preacher murder in god's name
And a lovelorn teacher smother his old flame
Seen a teenage mother throw her child down a well
Just before her brother shot them both to hell

And they say it started once I rolled in

Seen the dried up lees of a mail order bride
With her pet Maltese poisoned at her side
Seen a schoolgirl bludgeoned with a Louisville bat
I heard her kissing cousin could be traced to that

And they say it started once I rolled in

about

Heathen Apostles Los Angeles, California

"If there is such a thing in the current fringe roots genre as a supergroup, it would certainly be the Los Angeles-based dark roots and gothic country band Heathen Apostles, who includes ex-members of Radio Noir (Mather Louth), The Cramps (Chopper Franklin), Kings of Nuthin’ (Thomas Lorioux) in its ranks. That is one hell of a lineup." - No Depression Magazine ... more
