"2 Kool to Be 4-Gotten" as written by and Lucinda Williams....
You can't depend on anything really
There's no promises there's no point
There's no good there's no bad
In this dirty little joint

No dope smoking no beer sold after 12 o'clock
Rosedale Mississippi Magic City Juke Joint
Mr Johnson sings over in a corner by the bar
Sold his soul to the devil so he can play guitar

Too cool to be forgotten
Hey hey too cool to be for gotten
Man running through the grass outside
Says he wants to take up serpents

Says he will drink the deadly thing
And it will not hurt him
House rule no exceptions
No bad language no gambling no fighting

Sorry no credit don't ask
Bathroom wall reads is God the answer YES
Too cool to be forgotten
Hey hey too cool to be forgotten

June bug vs hurricane
June bug vs hurricane
Hey hey

I had a lover
I thought he was mine
Thought I'd always be his valentine
Leaning agianst the railing of a Lake Charles bridge

Overlooking the river leaning over the edge
He asked me baby would you jump into the water with me
I told him no way baby that's your own death you see
Too cool to be forgotten

Hey hey too cool to be forgotten
June bug vs hurricane
June bug vs hurricane
Hey hey

    General CommentThis song, as is Lake Charles, is about Clyde Woodward who was Lucinda's boyfriend in the early 80s. Clyde was barely passable as a bass player but he was a very interesting cat. He died in 1991 at around 40 years old of liver failure after a life of excess.

    General Comment"Mr Johnson sings over in a corner by the bar
    Sold his soul to the devil so he can play guitar"

    This is evidently a reference to 1930s bluesman Robert Johnson, and the legends that he sold his soul at a crossroads in exchange for guitar skills.
