Rabbit Box

This song is by Vic Chesnutt and appears on the album Little (1990).

While I was still in elementary school
I discovered Daddy's tools
And amassed a small pile, of scrap lumber
And I built a rabbit box
And I set it facing north
But I caught a possum and a kitten
Both of which were a bitch to set free
'Cause I thought they were going to bite me
But we all three escaped safely

Well once I took my single shotgun
And put on my camouflage
And hid in the neighbour's pasture by the little cow pond
And finally after a long time
A bunch of doves flew by
And landed in a huddle on the power line
And so I aimed with an eagle's eye and fired
But it was two pigeons that fell like bean bags into the weeds
Well they sure looked like doves to me
