​Grave-Robbing In Gig Harbour

This song is by The Men They Couldn't Hang and appears on the album The Domino Club (1990).

'Intro featuring Phoenix Crabbe'

T'was August fair in gold and green
Saw the tragic death of a beauty queen
Crashed into a bar in a drunken Chevrolet
She was extricatedfrom her tomb
By a broken man from Saskatoon
They'd sworn undying love
They'd be together some fine day
They'd be together some fine day

Spirited away on a sultry morning
There's been Grave-robbing in Gig Harbour
Souls who rest in peace
Are ravaged without warning
There's been Grave-robbing in Gig Harbour

The witness sang before the court supreme
Of the the tainted ladies garbed in tangerine
Knowingly they loved the same dead man
Without disorder
He was a Mexicana wet-back by his birth
So they upheaved him from the bowels of the earth
To a shallow dusty grave South of the Border
South of the Border (down Mexico way!)

The skies are gray, the open tombs are yawning
There's been Grave-robbing in Gig Harbour
This heat makes some folks lazy
Others mad-dog crazy
They'll go Grave-robbing in Gig Harbour
