This came from random phrases and stuff I jotted down on my phone and computer that sounded interesting. From NPR, life in general,dreams,dog walks ,perhaps from FAWM And 50/90 also.
Rearranging it into some kind of coherent form was the biggest challenge .
She’s a Methedrine Daydream floating through the holler
She’s a Friday night bar fight ringing the bell
She’s an ice cream pop tart if you got a dollar
If you pull out a nickel then she’s mean as hell
He’s a riverboat gambler stealing all the chickens
A Walmart card shark with lies to tell
A bacon grease brain freeze sizzling in the kitchen
He's midnight dark in the bottom of the well
She screamed take me higher as he held her hand
In her push up bra with a tear stained eye
Said she saw angels at the top of the stairs
Their love was too young to die
But they both got lost in a minor key
He couldn’t give whatever she needs
Now he works all day on the rubber tire hoe
She play all night on her string banjo
They were driving their car towards the break of day
But the brakes gave out on the mental decline
A rock and roll suicide dragging the lake
We’re all just standing in the checkout line
