Moses in the Reeds

Her daddy was a small man

His given name was Buck

He used to call her Baby and the name just stuck

He said he come from nothing but bad luck

He drove away forever in a long haul truck

 

She’s got too tight pants, too tall curls

Too tiny tank top, two little girls

Her momma got the check

But Baby’s got the need

So its back to the house

She got a monkey to feed

 

A monkey to feed

Leeches to bleed

She lies on the sofa like Moses in the reeds

Hello dark, good bye light

Baby closes her eyes and she says goodnight

 

Boonville,  boontown, boondock, smack

She rides the oxy train on the oxy train track

Toys stuff, kid stuff, down on the floor

A car in the yard

Broken front door

Door leans right, door never close

Door got broke when he popped her in the nose

Lonnie popped her in the nose 

The cops knocked it with a ram

Bam, bam

Broke the door jam

 

A monkey to feed

Leeches to bleed

She lies on the sofa like Moses in the reeds

Hello dark, good bye light

Baby closes her eyes and she says goodnight

 

Truck stop, porn shop, script doc, honey

She’d buy all the pills if she had all the money

She’d fly with the angels 

When they swing low

Baby’s always leaving she's got no place to go

 

Got a monkey to feed

Leeches to bleed

She lies on the sofa like Moses in the reeds

Hello dark, good bye light

Baby closes her eyes and she says goodnight

Hello dark, good bye light

Baby closes her eyes and she says goodnight
