Too weird not to share!

Your hoochy coochy mama
She done run away yeh
Your hoochy coochy mama
Got a brand new place.

She aint been seen in some twenty four days
Jumped a freight with her roll in the hay up that
CSX way, not a paying passenger nah not a one
Haulin coal, taters, steel, ocean bound GMO's (popcorn).

Fate and fools coming through Buhl
Late one night at exactly the same time
A three county chase ended rookie school when
Johnny Law hit the wall of car forty-nine.

The moon hung low with no one home
The earth stood still with fire raging
Sound wouldn't come just a giant envelope of
Smoke covered sky for miles and miles.

The boom from the blast sent glass crashin
Brakes screeching for the folks in town
Who could still hear it, rooms lit, Crackerjacks rode
Their foam truck followed by HAz MAT bagheads blastin horns.

The manifest read (lord amen)
Like a death certificate (amen)
Heavy on Carbon disulfide, a devil's cocktail
Sulphuric acid a tremble down the spine and diesel fuel.

The noxious end for hoochy mama
That man Rollin Indahay
And forty-four others
that passed away in town.

Down at the corner is where they gathered
Got that one way ticket to sleepy holler
The gas rolled in melted their skin and
No one knew who was who for twenty four days.
