Horses

Happy Valley Music, BMI

Sorrow & Smoke: Live at the Horseshoe Lounge

I met Willie by the still, he was brewin' a batch
He had a short cigar and one last match
He was tellin' me 'bout his latest trouble with the
government
He had child support and alimony
He was looking depressed and kinda lonely
Just trying' to figure out where all his hard earned
money went

"Well I'll be go to Hell," he said,
"I got nothing but a Ford and a barn full of hay
If it weren't for horses and divorces
I'd be a lot better off today"

Well I said, "Willie, that sounds like a song"
He said, "Son you know you might not be all wrong
Could you give me a little piece of the pie if you make
it a hit?
I got a '51 Ford I'd like to fix up
I got 2 sick ponies and one sick pup
And my third wife's coming today to take my TV set"

"Well I'll be go to Hell," he said,
"I got nothing but a Ford and a barn full of hay
If it weren't for horses and divorces
I'd be a lot better off today"

Well God bless poor old Willie McCann
You know he's always been a good hard working man
He bought me a beer last night down at the Horseshoe
Lounge.
He said, "Horses and women are fine sure 'nuff
But if you don't treat 'em right things are gonna get
rough
Believe me, I've got these four year marriages down"

"Well I'll be go to Hell," he said,
"I got nothing but a Ford and a barn full of hay
If it weren't for horses and divorces
I'd have a lot more money, and less grey hair
I might even be a millionaire
If it weren't for horses and divorces
I'd be a lot better off today"
