It's dark in here...lines are down
house it makes a moaning sound
wind looks for ways to get inside
rain tests your will fear tests your pride
came down here to rest my head
now they're saying that I've been mislead
sky blue water it turned to brown
on the night that Frances came to town

My wife she died some 10 years back
she gave me 60 years and a son named Jack
he's got an office with a view above it all
I got a trailer and a brand new southern drawl
never took a thing I didn't earn
there ain't no lesson that I'm afraid to learn
they told me to leave but I hunkered down
on the night that Frances came to town

You run if you got somewhere to go
eyes of hope growing blind
I brought my life in a U-Haul truck
I ain't leaving it behind

I tried to pray but it don't sound right
with Him not willing to put up a fight
I'm 82 and a long way from home
and I'm sure getting tired of being alone
so c'mon girl lay down next to me
and take me to where I wanna be
she took my pain allowed me to drown
on the night that Frances came to town
