No Insurance

 

I woke up down the road this mornin'

In the year of a thirty eight

With a hundred dollar tongue too cheap

To answer to the weight

 

Weight of her heavy eyes hard as saucers

Dirty in the kitchen

She's whisperin' up the losses

Through the tears and no insurance

 

            Say Kelly you ain't ready

            Say Kelly you ain't ready

            For the next man in a hurry

            Kelly you must better slow down

            Soon from hurtin'

 

Proves the point to continue

Within' love before freedom

Wearin' through the sinew

Prayin' hard for breakin' even

 

            Say Kelly you ain't ready

            Say Kelly you ain't ready

            For the next man in a hurry

            Kelly you must better slow down

            Soon from hurtin'

 

Shake down possibilities

Learnin' in a trailer

Shirkin' sensibilities

Through a heart that surely made her

 

Made her heavy eyes soft and longin'

Stronger in the mornin'

She's lappin up the loneliness

Through the tears and no insurance

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

 

Kelly you must better slow down

Soon from hurtin'
