lyrics

she was born on a farm way back in 57
got a free education up until the age eleven
her father drove a ford and her mother drove her mad
they would bicker and theyʼd squall about what the other had

he got drunk twice a week and they carried him back home
she never lied except on Sundays and on the telephone
she called her father and she told him what he didnʼt want to hear
he watched her crying in the rearview mirror

they donʼt make cars like they used to
they donʼt make many things good
so you pray to god...but you row for the shore
all the ones that you love are only bones and blood

she joined the circus with her eyes every time it passed on through
she hung out with the freaks and talked no colours, only blue,
and when the winds rose she watched the circus packing up
there was always room for Sally Ann in Marlowʼs truck

she built a fire on the ground and they danced around the flames
with the cheap tang of moonshine and he carved her name
on the back of his hand with a foldaway knife
she never washed that blade although she had it all her life

she met the love of her life in a broken down car
he had ivory ribs and a smile that stood ajar
grit-grey eyes and skinny blue jeans
you can wash that boy with water but heʼll never come clean

it gets a little hazy right about here
i lost her trail 2004
omaha
a house with nine doors
seventeen windows and a broken down ford

Her continuously evolving musical personality is proof that a freedom from artistic restraints can sometimes produce a unique, enthralling and original voice with a rare honesty. ... more
