Mineral Wells Lyrics

She was living in a Cadillac bedded down in the back
seat
On a back street of the Hollywood hills
With a scrap book museum a memory
Old photo's and telephone bills
She'd been a great actress
In two dozen movies
Played Shakespeare on the great London stage
Before the three husbands six kids and bad breaks
At sixty eight odd years of age
Well him they called fat boy
Wore a grey overall
And he clocked in at four hundred pounds
With a passion for food and film magazines
He'd been a great critic down town
But he'd seen all her movies
He worshipped her face
Stories by bitter end
Though she bore no resemblance to the star he adored
The films over boys real life begins
But she told him of a fountain of youth
in the hot Texas earth
It'll heal and renew us
It's somewhere west of Fort Worth
She'd met her old flame in the Crazy Water Hotel
And they danced down the street there
In the moonlight of Old Mineral Wells
So they boarded a greyhound in search of the fountain
Fat Boy and the aging film queen
Through the great painted desert
And on across Texas
Amarillo Plain View Abilene
Well they stopped off at Fort Worth for a fresh cup of
coffee
Come the local to old Mineral Wells
And he dropped her in front of
That boarded old castle
The Crazy Water Hotel
Disllusioned they found a cheap room off the highway
Drank vodka from a styrofoam cup
There'd be no healing return to the past
'Cos the fountain of youth had dried up
So the critic and the film star
Held hands and drank vodka
As the great Texas earth was unveiled
And drunk but still dreaming
Theey waltzed down the street
'Neath the moonlight of old Mineral Wells
But she told him of a fountain of youth
in the hot Texas earth
It'll heal and renew us
It's somewhere west of Fort Worth
She'd met her old flame in the Crazy Water Hotel
And they danced down the street there
In the moonlight of Old Mineral Wells
And they danced down the street there
In the moonlight of Old Mineral Wells
