lyrics

Well darlin' ain't you made of somethin' silver
Don't you glint just like a velvet rose
It's like you shimmer from your head to your toes,
And I'm a' simmerin' right outta myself just to be with you,
So pack up all your things,
Take your shoes from their even rows,
And we can take us one one of those
Steam boats and head for New Orleans,
And we can settle us one of those
Beautiful bayous,

'Cause sure as the vine twines 'round the stump,
You are my darlin' sugar lump,
So love me like you mean,
Love me like we're leaving on bad news,

Like there's an angel in the corner
Cutting silver in quarters
Like it's over,
Like it's already over,
Like we got old,
Like we're sober,

Well listen here you bow-legged mouth breather,
You best believe with your soul, either we
Take us a break from all this running about,
Or get a toutin' for yourself a new keeper,
'Cause I ain't been to sleep
Or seen the wind leave the sheets,
Hell, we ain't had ourselves no maritals
In nearly a week,
And you smell like whiskey and sheep,

Well darlin', 'cause sure as the vine
Twines 'round the stump,
You're my darlin sugar lump,
So love me like you mean it,
Love me like we're leaving on bad news,

Like there's an angel in the corner
Cutting silver into quarters
Like it's over,
Like it's already over,
Like we got old,
Like we're sober.

Glitter and gin stains down the front of a sun dress worn by a man with no ambition, glazed with rain water, beside the white chickens.
