Love and Theft - Town Drunk Lyrics


She used to come over to my house, she only lived a few miles away
Never knew why but my mama said fi she wanted she could stay
A pretty little girl who fought like a boy but she wanted to hold my hand
In a little blue dress that she always wore, yeah, I might have been her only friend

I remember that summer like yesterday, she ted to hang around all the time
Down by the creek we would always play and tell secrets by the porch light
Shy as a bird and timid as a flower I wondered where she grew up
I never really thought that much about it but everybody said her daddy was the town drunk

[Chorus:]
Broken like a bottle, running from the only home she ever had
Tangled in the talk behind her back
Yeah, he thought she was nothin, growing like a weed on the wrong side of the tracks
How could anyone not love a girl like that?

One afternoon in the middle of town, I saw her daddy sleeping on a bench
So I walked up to him and introduced myself, said his daughter was my best friend
He looked at me like he didn't care and he asked me for a couple bucks
Right then I decided I'd look after that pretty little girl whose daddy was the town drunk

[Repeat Chorus]

A girl like that

[Repeat Chorus]

A girl like that

Several years later, I read in the paper that her daddy had passed away
I was holdin' her hand, she had the baby in the other there was really nothing I could say
She looked at me and I have her a kiss
All that really mattered was the three of us
Nobody thought it'd all work out for that little girl who was the town drunk
