lyrics

Drunk in Sacramento, sleepin’ on a stranger’s porch
Filled with a passion we thought would last forever more
Forever only lasted about ten months
What a glorious nine months that was

Drinking forty-ohs and listening to old vinyl
You turned me onto Tom Waits and “This Year’s Model”
Oh back then you were such a mysterious thing
The peculiar answers twenty years will bring

Now you talk about Jesus and you talk about Little League games
My oh my, how these times have changed

I’m glad to see you’re doing well
It’s been a gas catching up for a spell
But it’s time for me to be moving on
The train back home leaves at dawn
Thank you for a helluva time in this cheap motel

Now you say you got a husband and you even got a set of twins
Marriage and children are two things that I never did
When you moved to Paris you tore my world apart
Hell hath no fury like a man with a broken heart

Now you look like your mother and you kind of sound like her too
I must admit I never thought it would happen to you

I’m glad to see you’re doing well
It’s been a gas catching up for a spell
But it’s time for me to be moving on
The train back home leaves at dawn
Thank you for a helluva time in this cheap motel

It sounds like your husband is a real fine piece of work
You deserve better, doesn’t matter who you once were
Don’t you cry now, girl, you really ain’t that old
Forty’s the new twenty-eight or so I’m told

Now I ain’t no hero and I ain’t here to save the day
But in my experience it’s never too late to change

I hope to see you doing well
It’s been a gas catching up for a spell
But it’s time for me to be moving on
The train back home leaves at dawn
Thank you for a helluva time in this cheap motel
