Handsome Family - Beautiful William lyrics

Beautiful William
One morning in May
In a milk-white convertible
Drove slowly away

Beautiful William
With curly black hair
Gold rings on his fingers
As he held to the wheel

Was he given a package
By a man on the train?
We found his car by the roadside
Later that day

Mirrored sunglasses
Roses and wine
Laid on the empty seat
As he slowly drove by

He left his lights burning
He left his perfect lawn
And his automatic sprinklers
About to switch on

Did he find a black glove
On the cliffs by the bay?
Why would he leave us?
Why would he leave us this way?

He drove through the town
With a smile on his face
Waving to everyone
As he went on his way

Polly from Red River
Rose from Green Falls
They drove to his house
And they laid on the lawn

Was he stopped in the airport
By a man with a cane?
We found his car by the roadside
Later that day

Rose smashed his windows
'Til the glass was all gone
Polly broke the backdoor
And she screamed down the hall

But no answer sounded
But wind flying through
As we tore up the green lawn
And torched all the rooms

Did he find a white glove
In the pines by the lake?
Why would he leave us?
Why would he leave us this way?
