The Dead South Good Company
Most important part I've had a The Dead South Good Company who probably wanted to kill me although I The Dead South Good Company cheat on him. Well, naturally. I mean, ain't nobody going through that for a blonde One interpretation was that the song is from an abusive husband who was killed by his wife and she finally stood up to herself and killed him. He didnt really see it coming, it didnt really hurt, but now hes in hell and soon his wife will be for his murder.
I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read it. But it fits perfectly. There's also a Starz series based on the book called American Gods. Check it out. That's an interpretation that had never crossed my mind at all. But it does rather fit, doesn't it? Incidentally, if you're reading this and you're not already acquainted with American Gods, go give it a look. It's worth the read. When he travels "three times down around hell" sees his friends and gets to know everyone else that are obviously a lot like himself he'll be in good company.
And my money would be on a murder, likely his wife or her lover - or himself. I think one day they will discuss it. I hope so. The story I'm seeing here is a "lady" who is in an abusive relationship with The Dead South Good Company "husband" who's looking The Dead South Good Company another man, or is being suited by one. One of them is reluctant, "Oh Lord I ain't Beatles A Hard Days Night home with you.
The "guy" stabs and kills him. I wonder if there's any signifigance to the brass? The third verse is the "guy" is describing his prize, "My Squeeze. Finally, the 7th line, In Hell I'll be in good company means he's as stupid as the guy he killed for the "lady" and so he'll be in good company. Brass is an old term for prostitute, I think this line is figurative. I think the brass knife is symbolic of brass bed. So she stabbed him in the back using the big ol brass bed.
The stuffed shirt is her new fellow, as in just some random guy he did not know. Hadn't dug as far into this as you guys have. Just love the song. It's a classic Bluegrass murder ballad. She shoves him, knifes him, he retaliates, figures he'll hang for it, off to hell with both of them. He catches her cheating. He beats her up. A brass knife digs into his shoulder A man would more likely have immediate access to a knife rather than a woman He asks what he should do.
He decides one round for him, one round for her and one round for himself Three rounds. By "In good company" he implies that his love and the man she slept with will both The Dead South Good Company to hell for their sins also.
So he'll literally "See them in hell". I take this as the antagonist breaking even. In philosophy it's called "Absurdism". Also I could be totally wrong since it's a song and can be interpreted a million different ways. Glad to know I'm not the only one C:.
He walks in on his wife cheating. The room smells like sex and the bed is messed up— probably with a big wet sex stain. The brass knife represents both severing his relationship with her and the end of his ignorance of what she has been doing.
I liked the song a lot until I got the meaning of the song. Here is my take, his red head wife that he is so proud of cheats on him so he is disgusted by her. He beats her and threatens to kill her Dead wife is what I told her. She stabs him in defense Brass knife sinks into my shoulder. He kills her. He is sentenced Lord Echo Just Do You hang and he knows he is condemned to hell Oh Lord I ain't coming home with you in three seconds and will be there in three counts where he will be with her 1 Corinthians adultery hall not see the kingdom of heaven In Hell he will be In Good Company with her.
I feel like the relationship stalled, so he The Dead South Good Company disgusted by his wife so he cheated on her he told the other girl that his wife was dead then one day he comes back to his house to find that she cheated on him too with a friend catched them on the act and stabbed on the back cause of the friend he kills them both and suicides because it's an easier death than being hanged, since he suicided and commited murder he's not going to heaven he will go to hell, and maybe he will find better friends there than the two cheaters he slugged in hell i'll be in good company.
Exactly what I thought as well, and in much fewer words than what I wrote out; a great interpretation for sure! Imagine there's a comma after the word 'dead' He suspected the cheating as the evidence presents. Hes proud because she was clever about itgetting away with it right under his nose, but disgusted because cheating. He kills them both, his world gets colder. So, he kills himself, too, rather than get caught and hang.
And will thus be in good company in hell with them both. Because hes not going home to heaven with the lord. But, it serves also, as a suggestion to imply loyalty to his wife, both in life and in death and refusing something good to be with his wife even if is hell. His marriage went stale. Him and his wife fought it got physical and he threatened to kill her. He went to jail, came back found his wife with another guy and is now contemplating suicide.
It's about a man who murdered his cheating wife and is happy to go to hell with her.
