I can still remember the day we said “I do.”
I thought we were happy; I thought your love was true
Never once suspected there was ars’nic in my stew!
Now you sit awaitin’ the insurance to come through
*Oh, Belle…why’d I have to die?
Why did it have to end this way?
Oh, Belle…where’d it go awry?
Undertaker’s come to put me in my grave
I can still remember when we wed in ‘02
You in your cotton dress, me in my suit of blue
You needed a husband and my daughter needed you
I never once suspected you’d split my head in two!
*Oh, Belle…why’d you kill me too?
Why’ve you done this thing to me?
Oh, Belle…I have loved you true
But now you’re moving on to husband number three…
I can still remember the letters you sent me
You said we’d be married and be a family
So I sold off my farm, gave you all of my money
I never once suspected you’d feed the pigs with me!
*Oh, Belle…why’d you do me wrong?
Why do you do the things you do?
Oh, Belle…loved you all along
But you have gone and found yourself somebody new
I still remember when I first stepped on your land
Took me in, fed me, gave me work as your farmhand
Helped you bury bodies, put myself at your command
But you made me your patsy; put me in the witness stand!
*Oh, Belle…why’d you run away
Why did you put me in this frame?
Oh, Belle…I’m in jail to stay
Why’d you leave me here and let me take the blame?
Oh, Belle…I’ve been cast aside
And you’ve gone down in history
Oh, Belle…where’d you go and hide?
You have made your fortune and become a mystery
