"Lucille" as written by Roger Bowling, Hal Bynum, Anthony Hamilton, Erick Coomes, Tyler Coomes and David Balfour....
In a bar in Toledo across the depot
On a barstool she took off her ring
I thought I'd get closer
So I walked on over
I sat down and ask her name
When the drink finally hit her
She said I'm no quitter
But I finally quit living on drinks
I'm hungry for laughter
And here ever after

In the mirror I saw him
I closely watch him
I thought how he looked out of place
He came to the woman
Sat down beside me
He had a strange look on his face
The big hands are callous
He looked like a mountain
From a minute I thought I was dead
But he started shaking
But his big heart was breaking

You picked the fine time to leave me, Lucille
Four hungry children and a crop in the field
I've had some bad time
Live thru' some sad times
But this time the hurting won't heal
You pick the fine time to leave me, Lucille

After he left her
I ordered some whisky
I thought how she made him look small
From thee lights of the barroom
To rented hotel room
We walked without talking at all
She was a beauty
But when she came to me
She must have thought I lose my mind
I couldn't hold her
The words that he told her
The words that he told her
Kept coming back time after time
