Lyrics

Brody White was a handsome boy
Over six feet tall
A scholar and a football star
A hero to one and all
Everybody told me
How lucky I must be
Cause he gave my girl a diamond
He’d soon be family

But Brody had a dark side
Not many knew about
And when he started drinking
That part of him came out
It was hard to believe
Till the first time that I saw
The proof of Brody’s temper
There on my baby’s jaw

Gather round- everybody listen
There’s a rumor in the town- Brody White’s gone missing

Brody had a spot on Fridays
On the lake where he would go
So I hid there till sundown
I knew by dark he’d show
He was looking for some catfish
But the last thing that he saw
Was the butt of my old twelve gauge
Right across his jaw

Gather round- everybody listen
There’s a rumor in the town- Brody White’s gone missing

The sheriff came to see me
After a day or two
He didn’t ask me nothing
Where I was or what I knew
All he did was shake my hand
And whisper thank you
Then he told me that his daughter
Used to date Brody too

Gather round- everybody listen
There’s a rumor in the town- Brody White’s gone missing
