Here's an obscure one: "The Other Shoe" by the Old 97's, a cheery little double-murder ditty.

By the time she thought you'd probably got to Phoenix
She'd arranged for your shoes to be filled
You've got your pride and a blue-steel .45
And you're waiting for the other shoe to fall

A straight-up live version, or if you prefer a more old-school country feel, one with Waylon Jennings on vocals.
