Lucille Kenny Rogers

Letra de Lucille

In a bar in toledo across from the depot on a
bar stool she took off her ring
i thought i'd get closer so i walked on over i
sat down and asked her name
when the drinks finally hit her she said i'm no
quitter but i finally quit livin on dreams
i'm hungry for laughter and here ever after i'm
after what-ever the other life brings

in the mirror i saw him and i closely watched him i
thought how he looked out of place
he came to the woman who sat there be-side me he
had a strange look on his face
the big hands were calloused he looked like a
mountain for a minute i thought i was dead
but he started shaking his big heart was
breaking he turned to the woman and said

you picked a fine time to leave me lu-cille
with four hungry children and a crop in the field
i've had some bad times lived through some sad times but
this time your hurting won't heal
you picked a fine time to leave me lu-cille.

after he left us i ordered more whisky i thought how she'd
made him look small
from the lights of the bar room to a rented ho-tel room we
walked without talking at all
she was a beauty but when she came to me she
must have thought i'd lost my mind
i could'nt hold her 'cos the words that told her kept
coming back time after time
