southern justice a song

In a little town in georgia
About a houndred years ago
Thats when it all started
 All the details I don't know
In a diary her daddy read
Those words brought him to tears
How the tucker boys hurt Amy
It was his worst fear
Her innocence was taken
Not given of free will
The rage he felt inside
Had made him want to kill
Southern justice
The law will make things right
Southern justice
Is what he wanted that knight
But when the jury came in
You could hear the drop of a pin
The judge sat there and said
Not giulty no sin
John Tucker turned
He winked, and blew Amy a kiss
Her daddy stood up and said
Southern justice will be mine
Southern justice Boy you can't hide
I will find southern justice
In an allyway between a store and a bar
Her daddy stood with a gun
Blood on his hands
And tears in his eyes
He said southern justice has been done
Her innosence was taken
Not given of free will
And the rage he felt inside
Had driven him to kill
Southern justice
 He screamed out loud
As they hung him
Infront of that southern justice crowd
As amy cries
Southern justice
Will be mine
Southern justice
