PATTY LOVELESS


Ships Lyrics

(Gretchen Peters)

Eddie had a few days comin'
So he took a Las Vegas jaunt
Out to the land of supply and demand
Where you can get anything you want
He wasn't lookin' for true love
No, he didn't believe in that stuff
Eddie LeGrande was a hard workin' man
Who just needed a little good luck

His shoes were a little worn
His hair was a little thin
Just another old sailor
Waitin' on his ship to come in

Lily was a two time loser
Who said that love was just a roll of the dice
She acted real tough, said once ain't enough
For me I learned my lesson twice
But deep in her heart lived a young girl
Dreamin' a young girl's dream
And that young girl was who Eddie ran into
Over by the slot machines

Her face was a little pale
Her dress was a little thin
Oh but lookin' at her was like
Watchin' his ship come in

Well, he bought her a cup of coffee
With the quarters he meant to play
They went for a bite and they talked all night
'Til they said what they needed to say
Then they found 'em an all night chapel
With a heart shaped honeymoon suite
And somewhere tonight in the neon light
Two hearts can't be beat

And he's singin' a little song
She's grinnin' a little grin
And they're holdin' each other
Watchin' their ship to come in
Her face was a little pale
His hair was a little thin
But they're two young lovers
Watchin' their ship to come in
Just holdin' each other
Watchin' their ship to come in
