Old Girlfriend Hits the Skids
Living in a down-and-out garage setting after a break-up.
I heard you're doin well and livin large in a garage over on 4th and Easy Street
Smilin at every stranger and pettin every dog you meet
Slim Jim and Cadillac Jack said you wore a smile that looked suspiciously authentic
and ruby "no place like home" slippers you got from "Own It Now or Rent It"
But it's all Dreadful news from some recently refurbished garage
Your drug store palszie walszies and those phonies you left me for
are talking big and spinnin tales about what they have in store
They said your breath could crack the sidewalk
and you winked when you should have cried
And you told the truth to everyone baby when you know you should've lied
And it's such such Dreadful News, such Dreadful News from some recently refurbished garage
Your end table from Ethan Allen leans awkwardly on and '83 Impala
And that Lava Lamp we got from Aunt Fran you pawned it for a lonely crumpled dolla
and you're usin empty Dinty Moore cans for ashtrays /slash/ dinnerware
and when you get an urge or notion you just change your mind and sit and stare cuz you don't want to waste a single motion
And it's all such Dreadful News, Dreadful News from some recently refurbished garage
That Buddha you got for Christmas sits smiling at a can of Pennzoil 10w30
And his belly is adjacent to a book entitled "Jokes You Can Tell Your Mother Even Though They're Dirty"
They said you looked content and downright smug
-enjoying the moment's ride
But if you looked through your paper front, baby - they could see the other side
And it's all such Dreadful News, Dreadful News from that recently refurbished garage
And all this dreadful news is tragic - but what's even sadder still - is how much I love and miss you baby and guess I always will
But it's all such Dreadful News, Dreadful News from that recently refurbished garage
You are a seasoned musical artist with an original expression, who now needs to find a clever way to market your many talents.
That's Chicago Blues at it's best. Great job. Nice Blues feel. I loved it
keep rocking and recording.
cool blues. quality in everyway from the deep spoken style grit of the vocal to the splendid backing music that supports the lyrics with class. would work well in a movie this song.
