Tell me why, tell me why,
My daddy was crucified
Late last 'Tober night.
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why.

He wasn't going far,
He just wanted to drive his car.
Tell me why, Tell me why, Tell me why.

You didn't have to call,
You could have saved us all
From burying him in his stall...
Tell me why.

Tell me why, tell me why.
My daddy was crucified
Late last 'Tober night.
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why.

The last thing I saw,
The very last thing I recall,
Was seeing him pull away,
Like any other day
With a good wave to say...
Goodbye.

You didn't have to drink,
You knew you'd ruin the sink,
Why didn't you think?
Tell me why.


Tell me why, tell me why,
My daddy was crucified
Late last 'Tober night.
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why.

That call late at night,
Really stirred a fight.
My mother fell and cried,
Tell me why.

He was found
on the ground,
Window in his eye,
Blood splattered as he died.
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why.


Tell me why, tell me why,
My daddy was crucified
Late last 'Tober night.
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why.

I'll never get a call
Or ever a glimpse at all
Of the man I dearly knew...
Tell me why.

Tell me why, tell me why,
My daddy was crucified
Late last 'Tober night.
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why.

Favorite Quote:
life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.

i like the simplistic almost childish wording, and the way it contrasts with the content
