MATINEE

sleeping in the back row at the matinee
sleeping in the back row at the matinee
sleeping through a summer's day

up Cadillac Mountain never coming back
up Cadillac Mountain never coming back
never coming down from up Cadillac

daddy the rascal you don't know the half
ran himself out of Houston Denver before that
through the open door the candle flame
I too surely been born and named

been rain since yesterday
been rain since yesterday
headlights winding up the gravel driveway

I got love like evergreen
I got love like evergreen
their getting down tonight on the Riverboat Queen

yellow moon through branches shining
stop folding clothes and just stand there crying
red is the clay and red the sun
you go on home now and let me be lonesome

out the side the door to the alleyway
out the side the door to the alleyway
no rags no bones no bottles today
