    I can totally imagine Garth singing this song

    Switch Kenny with Garth. Powerful lyrics. I can hear Vicki Hampton backing him.

    Thoughts on Garth cutting this song?

    Lyrics



    Well, a hammer fell down on a .44 primer
    And that was one less problem in South Carolina tonight
    Wrong or right.

    She just looked to me as she finished her tale
    The blank expression went another pale shade of gray
    There was nothing to say.

    In the shadows of her face I saw the scars
    That you get when you live where love is hard
    And she said,

    "Don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat."
    "Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile in my bare feet."
    "There are people that you pass by every day
    With harder cards than yours in life to play."

    Well, I put the cuffs on her and sat her in the car
    Walked inside, he was layin' on the floor stone dead
    Been shot in the head.

    There were whiskey bottles and dope by the chair
    A starving baby with nothing to wear but tears
    So the picture was clear.

    He had finally pushed her way across the line
    And the badge I wore was losing all its shine
    And she said,

    "Don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat."
    "Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile in my bare feet."
    "There are people that you pass by every day
    With harder cards than yours in life to play."

    I just stood there thinkin' how justice is blind
    But after thirty five years you learn to read the signs
    So I made up my mind.

    I took the cuffs oof her and I walked her back in
    Wiped the gun off and wrapped it in his right hand
    Where it should've been.

    And the morning paper read in black and white
    It's just another senseless case of suicide
    Suicide.

    Oh, but don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat
    Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile along my beat
    There are people that you pass by every day
    With harder cards than yours in life to play.

    Well, a hammer fell down on a .44 Primer
    And that was one less problem in South Carolina tonight...

    One hobby of mine is that I play separate songs together if I find any similarities. Like for example, I play Man Against Machine, then I play Murder Incorporated by Springsteen. In the case of this song, I'm now playing Courage of Love and the similarities are there. So Garth could definitely sing this song no problem.

    Interesting! I only knew Collin Raye's version of this song, and it's one of my favorites of his.
    Dreams can come true with God's great angels like you.
    Completely Wrapped Up in Garth, and loving it!
