"Girl from a Pawnshop" as written by and Christopher Mark/robinson Robinson....
With a pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
she sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, should she leave town
To play the role of lover ex-patriot
A nod to the waiter,always her flirty behavior,
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter from a bag
Under her sweater and before she
reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number I never
lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
we'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter,one tear
falls like a feather and disappears
on this bar room floor
The gratuity included, you know
the letter concluded

P.S. All my love

    That's just one of the great lines from this song, but the poster above is right, the Croweology version of this song surpasses any expectation. I think that the beauty of this song (and many of the Crowes' songs) is that their lyrics, although metaphoric at times, are also pretty straight forward and applicable to any aspect of one's life. It's the sound of the instruments, the emotion of Chris Robinson's voice that tells the story- that's where their songs get you. One of their best, even if never released...it's a song that you'll remember in a certain situation and then play over and over. "There's a passion in being alone, a grace in a loveless time."
