KENNY ROGERS


Lucille Lyrics

In a bar in Toledo
across from 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 asked her the name

When the drinks finally hit her
she said "I'm no quitter"
but finally quit living on dreams
I’m hungry for laughter
and here ever after
I’m after whatever the other life brings

In the mirror I saw him
and closely watched him
I thought how he looked out of place
He came to the woman
who sat there beside me
he had a strange look on his face

The big hands were callused
he looked like a mountain
For a minute I thought I was dead
But he started shakin'
his big heart was breakin'
He turned to the woman and said

(chorus)
You picked a fine time
to leave me Lucille
with four hungry children
and a crop in the field
I had some bad times
lived through some sad times
but this time your hurting won't heal
You picked a fine time
to leave me Lucille

After he left us
I ordered more whiskey
I thought how she'd made him look small
From the lights of the bar room
to a rented hotel room
he walked without talkin' at all

She was a beauty
but when she came to me
she must have thought I’d lost my mind
I couldn’t hold her
cause the words that he told her
kept coming back time after time

(chorus 2x)
