SHOVELS & ROPE


Pretty Polly Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Polly was a girl not yet sixteen
I met her by the lake in the fall
Our love unfurled like a warm, sick dream
It's a shame I had to go and waste it all
When we were together everything was alright
We shared everything we could share
Easy like a feather 'til that one midnight
When she hit me with that undermined spell and I couldn't let her go
For the challenge she would bear
My eyes were turning into rope

[Pre-Chorus]
I couldn't let her go
I couldn't let her stay
I buried pretty Polly in a poor, pathetic grave

[Chorus]
Now she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, laid
Oh, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, laid

[Verse 2]
Stranded in the deadly parking lot
No gas, no money, no law
Promised to a promise that I wouldn't get caught
But the dark star handed me a gun and I couldn't let her go
All the beauty up above I could never control
I couldn't let her go

[Pre-Chorus]
I couldn't let her go
I couldn't let her stay
I pressed pretty Polly in a poor, pathetic grave

[Chorus]
Now she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, laid
Oh, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, laid

[Bridge]
I couldn't let her go
I couldn't let her stay
I ran like hell
I ran away
I ran like hell
From the hell that I made
From the mouth of our beds
From the mouth of the bed
Poor pretty Polly
The roof and the prayin'

[Chorus]
Now she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, laid
Oh, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, laid

[Outro]
She laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid
She laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid
She laid, she laid, she laid, she laid, she laid
