It’s true things weren’t great
between me and dear Kate,
since she found out that I’d been untrue.
And it’s true, yes, of course,
she was anti-divorce
and wouldn’t come round to our view.
And it’s true what they say –
that she stood in our way
of ever being happily wed,
but it wasn’t by guile
as I climbed o’er the style
that my old shotgun blew off her head.
