White Trash Beautiful, Trailer Park Queen
She slings hash at the diner from eleven to five
She married a boy from school, thought he was oh so cool
But all he can do for money is drive
Out late haulin' freight on Interstate five, prayin' he'll see home before his baby arrive

White Trash Beautiful, There's something you should know
My heart belongs to you
And you coulda found a better guy
I'll love you till the day I die
I swear to God it's true
I'm comin' home to you
I'm comin' home to you girl

He lights a cigarette, his eyes half open
He won't be home tonight, but she keeps hopin'
Drinkin himself to sleep is his only way of copein'
She waits for him every night, she leaves the front door open
It's 4 AM and doin' 95, Tryin' to stay awake and make it home alive

White Trash Beautiful, There's something you should know
My heart belongs to you
I know you coulda found a better guy
I'll love you till the day I die
I swear to God it's true
I'm comin' home to you
I'm comin' home to you girl

Her lips say painted red, nametag's crooked
Her heart's been gone awhile with the truck driving man that took it
He keeps her photograph on his rearview mirror
She prays for him every night, she hopes that he can hear her

White Trash Beautiful, There's something you should know
My heart belongs to you girl
I know you coulda found you some better guy
I'll love you till the day I die
I swear to God it's true
I'm comin' home to you
I'm comin' home to you girl
I'm comin' home to you

    General CommentThe music alone is compelling, but combined with the video it's even more potent. This song sneaked up on me and then I was suddenly addicted.

    It's definitely about "poor love" and I think it's definitely narrated by the husband. When the video is seen along with the song that becomes very clear and it helps intimate what perhaps, some of the words left out.

    A working man, a truck driver, has a beautiful wife. He loves her, she loves him, but he works on the road. They get pregnant ("prayin' he'll see home before his baby arrive"). The video also shows an image of the wife with a pregnancy test and the couple celebrating.

    The next scene in the video also shows her crying and him being angry as they part ways near his truck. He has to leave to hit the road again (to make money for his wife and soon to be baby). It's frustrating and sad for both of them.

    He drinks to dull the pain. After already driving for what one presumes is all day, he has a couple of drinks and then calls his wife. She misses him, he misses her. He's exhausted and drunk. She's pregnant and lonely. They hang up the phone.

    The next scene shows her packing her bag and getting into her car. It then flashes to him getting back in his truck and driving again; undoubtedly more than he should especially given that he's been drinking.

    The video then shows the husband having an accident as a result of his fatigue (he falls asleep at the wheel).

    The next cut goes to the wife arriving on the scene of the accident (implying that she was heading towards him - thus the implication that they were both attempting to go be with one another). The police officer on the scene of the accident restrains and consoles her, implying that her husband in his desire to be with her and driving while exhausted, has died in the accident.

    It's a critique of society and socio-economics for those that don't have the means to not have to be apart. The love depicted is a "perfect love" in a way that most of us would cheer for and would envy, but the economics of the situation causes pain and tension, and eventually results in choices being made that ultimately bring this love story to a tragic end.

    That's what the song when accompanied by the video implies anyway.

    General CommentHm, was thinking about it... could "doin' 95" mean that is driving 95?

    General CommentThis is a great song... Simple... but great. Just a view on a different kind of love... We all always picture love perfectly... this song as with a lot of Everlast songs bring us back to earth. Love comes in many shapes and sizes and blossoms everywhere... Even in white trash trailer parks... But you can still be true no matter where or how or who you love.

    General CommentDoes anyone know what is meant with "It's 4 AM and doin' 95" ?
    I don't know what "doin' 95" is supposed to mean...

    By the way, I love that song!

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it means he's driving 95 trying to make it home, since the song and video suggest the guy is a truck driver

    General Commenti don't think the narrator is some guy who wants to "save" her from her living situation and her guy. i think the narrator is the husband. he says

    "i know you coulda found you some better guy
    so i'm gonna love you till the day I die"

    and i think that may be self loathing because he isn't there for her as he wants to be.

    she is in love with him, and lonely because he is a truck driver and is not home much. he drives truck to support her and the baby to be, but drinks himself to sleep because he is heartbroken he can not be with her at the moment. what keeps him going is he knows he will get to go home to her.

    i think the point of the song is to show the plight of "trailer trash". these people are not at all trashy, and they love each other very much. they are just stuck in a financial situation that has them traped in a trailer home and a truck.

    General CommentSounds like a song you would here on a classic country radio station. Honestly, this kind of sound is really a twangy country sound. It's not bad, but it shows how adept Everlast is as an artist.

    This is why I like him. I really like this song, too.

    General Commentoh, and the line:

    It's 4 AM and doin' 95, Tryin' to stay awake and make it home alive

    is actually

    It's 4 AM and I doin' 95, Tryin' to stay awake and make it home alive .

    ...he is trying to hurry his truck's route so he can get home to her.
