That's a tiple you're hearing, not a mandolin.

lyrics

Dead Giveaway

Time to hang up your anger – hang it up on the wall
With your rifle and saddle – leave your boots by the door
‘Cause the black hat you’re wearing – gonna give you away
It’s a dead giveaway

You know the posse is coming – and they’re gunning for you
They’ve talked to your women – the ones that you screwed
Well the hearts that were broken – gonna give you away
It’s a dead giveaway

If the dogs’ lose the trail – where you entered the stream
That might buy you ‘til morning – to dream up some scheme
But the blood in the water – gonna give you away
It’s a dead giveaway

The bullet was anger – that ended your life
I watched for your last breath – to turn out the light
But the words I heard spoken – they’re a dead giveaway

Come carry me home, I’m through being alone
Scatter my bones and carry me home
