Zoe  & Chloe

(Chorus)

Zoe and Chloe were lovers

Zoe and Chloe were lovers

Zoe and Chloe were lovers

Were lovers                         

 

And they lived way back in the woods

They made all their own household goods

Drove a little truck

They had ev’rything they needed but luck

 

And they grew all their own stuff

They didn’t have much, but they had enough

Ev’rything they needed under the sun

But they didn’t have a gun

 

(Chorus)

 

And they chopped all their own wood

Life was sweet, it was very good

They thought they weren’t botherin’ anyone

They should have had a gun

 

They though that hardly anybody even knew they were there

As they fed each other and washed each other’s hair

They didn’t have a care

They didn’t have a prayer

 

(Chorus)

 

There was no warning, there was no sign

That this strange fruit would be torn from the vine

That it would never ripen in the warmth of the sun

But in the hell-heat of a gun

 

Zoe and Chloe, struck down in their prime and pride

By some redneck crackers with the world on their side

There was no place they could run

There was no place they could hide

 

(Chorus)

 

There was no warning, there was no sign

That this strange fruit would be torn from the vine

That it would never ripen in the warmth of the sun

But in the hell-heat of a gun

 

Zoe and Chloe, struck down in their prime and pride

By some redneck crackers with the world on their side

There was no place they could run

There was no place they could hide
