Lyrics: My Baby

My baby, working at the coffee shop
She said she never would again
I’m sorry baby, things never worked out
The way they should have back then

Her daddy taught her everything
His daddy taught him
She comes down slow from the mountain fall
And I’m her sea

Her mother
Tried several times
To leave her husband
And house behind

Pretty lady holds my gaze beneath
The mulberry tree
With hair like the morning
She comes with fiery cavalry

She knows just what to do with
The tear in my sleeve
Her tailor’s hands gone to work
In the night while I sleep

And in the morning
It’s good as new
I slip it over
My shoulder

And in the morning
I feed her dogs
With a buck in my pocket
Make my way home

    the porky might be a squeaky dog toy shaped like a pork chop. my girlfriend’s childhood poodle (god rest his beautiful soul) had one of those. in townsville. (and if i’m wrong about that I don’t want to be right… :)

    Pretty lady holds my gaze beneath
    The mulberry tree
    With hair like the morning
    She comes with fiery calvary

    She knows just what to do with
    The tear in my sleeve
    Her tailor’s hands gone to work
    In the night while I sleep

    And in the morning
    It’s good as new
    I slip it over

    And in the morning
    I feed her dogs
    With a buck in my pocket
    Make my way home.

    the lyrics used to be a lot different.
