He probably reported the boat stolen to his insurance and got money back, if so he'll get a heck of a felony fraud charge.

The lake's too narrow to be goin' that fast
Two fishermen sat in an old green Jon boat
Makin' one more cast

Full moon rising big and pale
That cigarette boat didn't even slow down
It was throwin' up a big old rooster tail
And it ran right through 'em with a sickening sound

Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?

The game warden's here and the EMS
They hauled up the body with a rope and a hook
They got no leads and no suspects
State trooper says they're not even gonna look

Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?
Had to have been some fat cat
Them cigarette boats, they cost many
Can't just anybody buy a boat like that

Does the Governor know who killed the fishermen?

They can't find the boat, they can't find the trailer
They were watchin' the ramps, big mistake
I'll bet you the farm it's in somebodies' boathouse
It never made the ramp and it's still on the lake

They try to get a warrant...dream all you want
they won't be searchin' any lake front homes
Justice is blind to them that own it
Money don't talk when it's one of their own
Money don't talk when it's one of their own
Money don't talk when it's one of their own

Creepy

Doesn't seem like a confession yet, but hopefully they are able to put all the peices together.
the tipster told them exactly where to dig on 10.5 acres. I figure the perp couldnt pay the blackmail anymore

I'm sure the song sounds pretty good with music, but the lyrics read pretty prejudiced to me. I don't know the story of the accident, but the words have the "cigarette" guilty, and running with no lights on. Maybe I'm wrong, but I find this offensive. I'm not referring to the accident, someone got killed and someone should pay the price, I just don't like the assumption that a "cigarette" caused the accident. The boat has now been found, ( sort of ), and maybe we can see what kind of boat it was. If it's not a "Cigarette", or anything even remotely similar, I want a revised version of the song. Maybe something like " I'm a moron and jump to conclusions". Sorry, I tell it like I feel it. ( I'm not just defending Cigarette, It's all the idiots that call every "Go-Fast" a Cigarette)

But it will add to his 10yr sentance. I think if he stopped and called the cops and said he ran over a boat with no lights on he'd be a free man today, Now he gots problems.
