"Larraine" as written by and Orenda Corrinne Fink Maria Diane Taylor....
It could have been a patch
Some say that it was cursed
You spent your whole life
Trying to wash away the dirt

They said that you were nothing
With the hands under your skirt
So you taught yourself a way
with a rag under your shirt

Oh Larraine

Your daddy loved you wrong
While you planted his gun
Your mother turned her face
Being princess of grace

Oh Larraine

They left you in the woods
To find your way back like a dog
You cried in the dark
While they drank beers on the lawn

Oh Larraine

The nightmares wouldn't stop
So you drink them to a haze
But when you cut the lines
They put you away

You had a little girl
Who had songs about your pain
An episode of grace
Now she's living in L.A.

Oh Larraine
Oh Larraine

Most of them I never knew
But that is just as well
Even as I cry for you
I know they're all in hell

Oh Larraine

Don't you know it was all for you, Larraine
Everything I did was for you, Loarraine
Cause what they did to you they did to me

    General CommentI found the below on another site. They make more sense.


    it could have been a patch
    Some say that it was cursed
    You spent your whole life
    Trying to wash away the dirt

    They said that you were nothing
    With the hands under your skirt
    So you taught yourself a way
    With a rag under your shirt

    Oh larraine

    Your daddy loved you wrong
    While he pointed his gun
    Your mother turned her face
    Being princess of grace

    Oh larraine

    They left you in the woods
    To find your way back like a dog
    You cried in the dark
    While they drank beers on the lawn

    Oh larraine
    Oh larraine


    The nightmares wouldn't stop
    So you drink them to a haze
    But when you cut the lines
    They put you away

    You had a little girl
    Who wrights songs about your pain
    An episode of grace
    Now she's living in l.a.

    Lyric CorrectionYou grew up in a patch,
    Some say that it was cursed.
    You spent your whole life
    Trying to wash away the dirt.

    They said that you were nothing,
    With their hands under your skirt;
    So you tied yourself away,
    With a rag under your shirt.

    Oh, Larraine

    Your daddy loved you wrong,
    While he pointed his gun;
    Your mother turned her face,
    Being Princess of Grace.

    Oh, Larraine

    They left you in the woods,
    To find your way back, like a dog;
    You cried in the dark,
    While they drank beers on the lawn.

    Oh, Larraine
    Oh, Larraine


    The nightmares wouldn't stop,
    So you drink them to a haze;
    But when you cut the lines,
    They put you away.

    You had a little girl,
    Who writes songs about your pain;
    An episode of Grace,
    Now she's living in L.A.

    Oh, Larraine
    Oh, Larraine

    Most of them I never knew,
    But that is just as well;
    Even as I cry for you,
    I know they're all in hell.

    Oh, Larraine

    Don't you know it was all for you, Larraine?
    Everything I did was for you, Larraine.
    'Cause what they did to you, they did to me...

    As for the song's meaning... I think it is pretty self explanatory.
