Howdy ma'am, where ya headed?
I'm goin' home
'sat right, where ya been?
Out west...

Heard my man was cheating me
He was out west, no chores for me
Eyes that watch just in the door
And now they'll open nevermore

I'll never go back

Swinging door only swings one way
When you give your heart away
When it's stolen by a thief
He only cries bloody grief

I'll never go back

Blue was just (?) the sky was grey
The sun went down on me that day
Gun was hot and my mind slipped away

Hid myself beneath the seat
The man can steal a woman's due
Found him in his lover's bed
And that is where i left him dead

I'll never go back

Took off my pants, took off my vest
And i put back on my dress
I walked into the street
I wasn't scared of what i'd meet

I'll never go back

Blue was just (?) the sky was grey
God came upon me that day
Gun was hot and my mind slipped away

    General CommentWhere you have: "He only cries bloody grief"... "The blue was ? the sky was grey"... "Hid myself beneath the seat".... "God came upon me that day"...


    I always heard, "He only pays with bloody grief" and "The room was dark, the sky was grey", "Hid myself beneath the suit, for a man can steal a woman's due" and "God gave up on me that day"


    :)

    Otherwise, a pretty straight [ha!] forward, fun song.
