TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Good Lord Lorrie

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Good Lord Lorrie Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

Lorrie lit a cigarette and smiled and waved the smoke out of her face
With her black hair brown from the summer sun, green eyes looked around the place
Then she told me that she loved me and I grinned and grabbed her hand and said I know
Lets get from here now darlin’ if we’re goin’ lets go on and go

Well Lorrie said her family used to have a little money and they still act like they do
But your daddy don’t think I’m fit to sit in the same room with you
And if I ever set foot in Sevier County well your brother said he’d break my jaw
Here I stand with a dark haired daughter of southwest Arkansas

[Chorus:]
And I’ve been learnin’ that believin’ and that barely breakin’ even
It’s just a part of life for you and me
And I’ve been livin’ with the loneliness, it’s got down in my bones I guess
It’s just another phase of being free
And I’ve been learnin’ how to lose a thing I never laid a hand on all along

Well good lord Lorrie, I love you, could it go more wrong
Well good lord Lorrie, I love you, could it go more wrong

Well D-Queens dry so I bought us both a bottle in downtown Broken Bow
Lorries got a buddy with a double wide trailer they were shaking dominoes
And I had good intentions ’til I had too many, I was stupid I suppose
You better put a little money where your mouth is boy and try to keep it closed

[Chorus]

Well Lorrie said I wonder what we ever went through all this trouble for
You ain’t half of who I thought you was and this ain’t fun no more
And her words cut clean through drunk and dark and dimmin’ doorway light
Well I’ve had all I can handle, hope you’re happy now, goodnight
Guess her folks were right, guess her folks were right

Well goodnight Lorrie, I love you, could it go more wrong
Well goodnight Lorrie, I love you, could it go more wrong
