He Thought He'd Die Laughing

Bobby Helms


His mind was numb by alcoholic beverages
And his courage quite what it should be
But he just happened to pick the wrong old boy to brag to
He didn't know the home he was wreckin' belonged to me

Well he bought a round and related all his good times
With my wife and all the places where they hid
But when he bragged about his plan to take my children
He said he thought he'd die laughing and he did

The sudden shock of realization when I told him who I was
Brought a sobering look of fear into his eyes
I struck so quick that he had no indication
He was tried convicted and sentenced by my own hand

He was the only guilty party not by a long shot
I remember now the countless times when she left the kids
But he was one man who really had his last laugh on me
He said he thought he'd die laughing and he did
He said he thought he'd die laughing and he did
