"Looks Like I'm Up Shit Creek Again" as written by and Tom Waits....
Well the sun came in my window Wednesday morning
And your love was like the golden rays again
Now I'm lying here on a Thursday, and you're lovin' someone new
And it looks like I'm up shit creek again

And I can't help thinking of your lovin' ways
And I cried a quart of tears since you've been gone
And I can't face the morning by myself love
And it looks like I'm up shit creek again

Since you've been gone, I cry all the time
And I cannot stand leavin' you behind
So I'll pull myself together, And I'll dry away my tears
But the morning light has brought back memories
And I can't face the morning by myself love
And it looks like I'm up shit creek again
So I'm out a walkin' on this dusty highway
Cause you've given me no reason for to stay
And I'll walk until I've found someone who loves me not in vain
And it looks like I'm up shit creek again
And it looks like I'm up shit creek again

    General CommentI am quietly convinced that in many of his early songs Waits is poking fun at various musical styles. This is a case in point. All strummy & full of hokey C&W emotion until you get to that down-to-earth chorus. Always make me laugh.
