"Black-Eyed Susan" as written by and Ernie Gammage....
Twenty days walking so lonely and talking to myself and the rocks and sand
Got me to thinking 'bout going and drinking in a tavern with a clean-shaven man

Just when I thought all souls had been bought by the devil here long ago
There did I see when I knelt to my knee I little texas flower grow

Black-eyed susan by the roadside blooming all yellow like sunshine red like wine
Flower like you in a desert this cruel my my you're a rare rare find

Well my newfound friend gave my heart a mend I sang her songs of my wayward ways
As day turned to night in the crystal moonlight I confirmed her unwavering gaze

As the days unraveled I stayed in the gravel and susan kept her eye on me
With my eye on her I felt my heart all astir with the joy of camaraderie

Black-eyed susan by the roadside blooming all yellow like sunshine red like wine
Flower like you in a desert this cruel my my you're a rare rare find

    General CommentI basically think that this song is about finding beauty in unlikely places.
    "Flower like you in a desert this cruel my my you're a rare rare find"
    It's really just one of her more light-hearted songs. Makes me feel pleasant.
    I adore Laura and her amazing use of imagery.
