Met in a cowboy town. I was a hick
She was a nobody and both of us were sick
I was ruined by the road, Bob Dylan and Robert Frank
Out of my mind and ready to rob a bank
She was so pretty. I thought it was impossible
Black hair, blue eyes, just out of the hospital
She untangled words with her pen and did it well
We found ourselves a diner and decided to sit a spell
We kept each other company; locked horns and flirted openly
Tonight we wouldn't have to be deserted, hopefully
We told our saddest stories; set fire to our hearts
Professional players that brought desire to our parts
The ice got thinner, a couple of sinners dreamin'
We flexed our thighs and exorcised our inner demons
It felt like returning to the place of my birth
Not exactly well off, we fell off the face of the earth.

To hell with society and suitable jobs
We became seagulls; beautiful slobs
As soon as we got some money, we started burning it;
Rented a car with no intentions of returning it
Segment by segment, I got her pregnant a bunch of times
Riding on the elevator with John the Revelator
Invisible girl and the odd man out
We drove that car into the goddamn ground.

Reoccurring bad dreams, born to be losing
Eventually the madness was no longer amusing
I tried to hide and died inside
While she cried and cried and cried and cried
Night-time no good, harder to face the day
Little by little, I watched her beauty waste away
Strange habits and quirks no longer curious
Everything she did made me frustrated and furious
The conversation dried up.

The whole thing teetered from right to the left
One step out of line became a fight to the death
Threats and suggestions, aggressions and deceptions
Ifs, ands or buts; maybes and no exceptions
No more reason to laugh
We knew it would die; it had to
Blue hair, black eyes; goodbye.
