Till Death Do Us Part: Vol. 5 ‘Between the River and Me’

Our final installment of murder songs gave us some pause. Should we choose Martina McBride’s “Independence Day,” in which an abused wife sets her house on fire, killing herself and her husband? Or how about Reba’s “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia,” which features one of my favorite lyrics: “His little sister don’t miss when she aims her gun”? Instead, we’ve opted to highlight a lesser known song from The Warren Brothers, “Between the River and Me.” It’s slightly off-topic in that the murderer isn’t the abused woman, but it’s a sludgy, slow burner that accumulates rage as it goes on. Tim McGraw covered this, but the Warren Brothers own it.
