Town Drunk 歌詞

Town Drunk - Love and Theft

 

She used to come over to my house

She only lived a few miles away

I never knew why but my mama said

If she wanted to she could stay

A pretty little girl who fought like a boy

But she wanted to hold my hand

And the little blue dress that she always wore

Yeah it might have been her only friend

 

I remember that summer like yesterday

She used to hang around all the time

Down by the creek we would always play

And tell secrets by the porch light

Shy as a bird and timid as a flower

I wonder where she grew up

I never really thought that much about it

But everybody said her daddy was the town drunk

 

Broken like a bottle

Running from the only home she ever had

Tangled in the talk behind her back

Yeah he thought she was nothing

Growing like a w**d on the wrong side of the tracks

How could anyone not love a girl like that

 

One afternoon in the middle of town

I saw her daddy sleeping on a bench

So I walked up and introduced myself

And said his daughter was my best friend

He looked at me like he didn't care

And asked me for a couple of bucks

Right then I decided that I'd look after

That pretty little girl whose daddy was the town drunk

 

Broken like a bottle

Running from the only home she ever had

Tangled in the talk behind her back

Yeah he thought she was nothing

Growing like a w**d on the wrong side of the tracks

How could anyone not love a girl like that girl like that

 

Broken like a bottle

Running from the only home she ever had

Tangled in the talk behind her back

Yeah he thought she was nothing

Growing like a w**d on the wrong side of the tracks

How could anyone not love a girl like that girl like that

 

Several years later I read in the paper

That her daddy had passed away

I was holding her hand she had the baby in the other

And there was really nothing I could say

She looked at me and I gave her a kiss

All that mattered was the three of us

Nobody thought it would all work out

For that pretty little girl

 

Whose daddy was the town drunk
