Stupid Song

from by Dusty Stray

lyrics

I had a guitar
You had a car
We didn’t get far
Before it broke down

Marooned
I played you a tune
About a saloon
With swinging door sound

One came out
One came in
One was shot
Again and again

And you were really listening
To every single little word
Of my stupid song

Told we’d be towed
We stayed by the road
But they never showed
So we walked home

The stars were bright
No city lights
One of those nights
That felt like a day

And after a while
Your feet were so sore
Still you would smile
And say, “play some more”

And you were really listening
To every single little word
Of my stupid song
