Song Meaning
Verse 1
Papa died smiling
Wide as the ring of a bell
Gone all star white
Small as a wish in a well
And Sodom, South Georgia
Woke like a tree full of bees
Buried in Christmas
Bows and a blanket of weeds
Verse 2
Papa died Sunday and I understood
All dead white boys say, "God is good"
White tongues hang out, "God is good"
Verse 3
Papa died while my
Girl Lady Edith was born
Both heads fell like
Eyes on a crack in the door
And Sodom, South Georgia
Slept on an acre of bones
Slept through Christmas
Slept like a bucket of snow
Verse 4
Papa died Sunday and I understood
All dead white boys say, "God is good"
White tongues hang out, "God is good"
