Songs: The Cheap Tour

The Cheap Tour

 

There was that time in Greenville

when the cops they ran my plate

You ate your pocket book

and got high you said on fate

 

There was that time in Tallahassee

when my car was in the ditch

You told the police I was drunk

but you didn’t want to snitch

 

(C)

There was that time in Austin

when my money wasn’t good

You said you had me covered

but I got beaten by those hoods

 

There was that time in Vegas

when the world stood still for hours

We stacked money up in towers

stared hard at plastic flowers in our room

 

(V)

There was that time in Memphis

when you hogged the mike all night

The lip service that you gave

just to avoid a fight

 

There was that time in Shreveport

the wind was blowing down the trees

You showed me that you had a heart

and love was just a breeze

 

(C)

 

There was that time in Tulsa

when you pushed me down the stairs

You called the ambulance

said pal now there we’re square

 

There was that time in New York

when you left me in that bar

I didn’t have a nickel

nor a notion where you were

 

(C)
