On The Farm

Well the daughters wear red
They are blonde
They don't know what dad means
When he hits ma

There's a chain in the barn
And it keeps them home
You ain't goin nowhere
They want to run

Well the sky is so big
They can get away
On another day
But not today

The sky is so big
Maybe on another day
But not today

So you gotta sink your head into a deep mattress
Keep quiet keep quiet

Call out your name
Bring you some fame
You'll be sorry
You ever mentioned his name
You thought you were lonely
Well we were just begining to get acquainted Molly


The sky is so big
Maybe on another day
But not today

Ford LTD

I got a Ford LTD and I'm fucking cool
It's got power windows and I'm fucking cool
It's got a bitchin stereo and I'm fucking cool
I got a Ford LTD
It ain't no duece and a quarter
It ain't no Kosher Kab
It ain't no Murder Mobile
It's a Ford LTD
That's Ford L-T-D
That means limited
An edition you can't have
It's got a four forty six pack
It's got low riding crow mags
Punch it

The chicks are out
And they're looking at me
And I'm thinking...

King King

Well the King King's the place
Where the whole human race
Gets drunk by the look
On the bartender's face

Well he's been there all week
He's forgotten how to speak
He's dragging his ass
And he's pouring them weak

There's a bottle of Jack
There's a bottle of gin
Whichever mood
You like to be in

Well he got hooked up too young
And she took all his socks

And she bit off his tongue
In his patin leather shoes
He tapdances to the blues

Now he stays away from the girls downtown
And he spends his time at the King King Lounge
Yes he's spending his time at the King King Lounge

Spending his time

Whore Betty

Well there was a little girl
And she lived downtown
And for fifteen dollars
She'd pull her pants down

She had hot legs hot pants a lipstick frown

Till a Greyhound bus put her in the ground

Betty don't do
That no more
Noone missed
Betty the whore

She was standing on the corner
She was telling all the guys to do what they wanna
Well I bet she'd be your mother for a dollar
She had broken back legs all around your collar

Betty don't do
That no more
Noone missed
Betty the whore

Well I guess you know the type of girl I'm talking about
She's the kind of girl who says she's goin to the corner store to buy a pack of smokes
And she ends up selling your car
Yes she's the kind of girl who you send her a love letter
And she sends it back because you spelt her last name wrong
So I'm sitting at the bar and she comes up to me
And she says hey man can I have twelve cents cause I ain't got enough to pay my rent
I said you ain't got enough to pay your rent
She said I ain't got enough to pay my rent
So I reached into my pocket and I turned to her and I gave her a look

Well I guess it's the last time you'll ever see her
Legs spread just like butter
I know it's the last time you'll ever see her
No more whore Betty clutter

Weather Vane

Well it was a sick day outside
And all the hogs were out to play
Pigs were running across
my feet in the mud
And all the hands on the farm were wound up
Men were buying first place pigs
And they were wearing thier wives wigs
All the way through Montana
There was a hell of a rain
There's a swell in your chest
And you're close to the eye
There's a dense fog in Salina
And noone knows why
