"Manteo" as written by and Stuart Mclamb....
Chesapeake, I could barely speak
When I said my first goodbye
My angel, she had frozen feet
The day that I arrived
Take your chances hustlin'
Or work a nine to five
If we don't get busted
Hope we make it out alive
Manteo, you got me tonight
Pluck a feather, clip a wing
You'll forget that it hurts
I used to keep my nose clean
But now I just sleep in the dirt
And I've got my coat of colors
I war it very nice
I know you get what you pay for
I never even thought twice
Manteo, you got me tonight

Chesapeake, I could barely speak
When I said my first goodbye
My angel, she had frozen feet
The day that I arrived
So we took our chances
Bustin' out pinata valentine
You had a boy you trusted
And I had a heart full of lies
Manteo, this is goodbye
