Well my dog died just yesterday and left me all alone,
the finance company dropped by today and repossessed my home.
But that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to losing you,
and I’m down to seeds and stems again too.
well willard’s knocked out on a bottle of heat,
drivin’ dangerous curves across the dirty sheets,
he said man you ought to see her,
when her parents are gone,
man you ought to hear her when the siren’s on.
you got to tell me brave captain,
why are the wicked so strong,
how do the angels get to sleep,
when the devil leaves the porchlight on.
