lyrics

Sweet cigarettes in the chill tonight
Underneath the harsh and holy light
Here in the little town that you come from

So you brought me here to see the ways
You lived your young and callow days
And they don’t seem much different than mine

So just for fun, let’s say it was you and Mr. Cowboy over there
Who married at nineteen, at the Elks Lodge canteen
And never left this town
And just for fun, let’s say it wasn’t you but Lady-come-before
Who I didn’t show the door, like all of them before
I learned a thing or two

CHORUS

So just for fun, let’s say that you were not the one
To guide my ache,
Til’ it would finally break
When I was laid out
and broken in the dark

And just for fun, let’s say we were not there for the play-by-play
Of an Autumn football game, and the daily day to day
And hon, I think it’s getting late

CHORUS
