Oh My America 

Mama Duke...Mama Dukes...I've been shot through my heart.

Oh, my God...oh, my baby...what's happened to you?

I don't know, Mama...I've been shot...is that my blood...am I bleeding?

Why, in God's mercy...oh, my only son...why?

I don't know mama...don't be mad...I was just buying candy.

Oh, my baby...what has happened...? Yes, you are bleeding.

Mama... I was buying candy...don't be mad...I was only buying...

Oh, my baby...oh, my son...oh, my God...this can't be true...

Oh My America.
