Doublewide Blues

 

APPEARS ON


Doublewide blues
I got the blues
Doublewide

V-neck t-shirt, with a mustard stain
Holding up a hose outside in the rain
He's been my neighbor since '79
'Course he was in prison most of that time

Ever since then he just ain't been right
His old lady works days and they fight most nights
Laid off and blown off, pissed off on booze
Doublewide blues

Metallica song blastin' out from two trailers down
It's them cut of t-shirt numchuck kids comin' around
Tonight they'll get drunk, try to get laid
End up in a fight out behind the arcade

You know one of them little shits broke my window last spring
I told his momma, she didn’t do anything
She works two jobs, he runs loose
Doublewide blues

Doublewide blues
I got the blues
Doublewide

My buddy Jimmy, now his trailer's cool
He got him a deck with one of them blue plastic pools
Workin' construction, he builds speck homes
His old lady left him, now he's down there alone

My friend Anita, she loves him, but he don't know
He's so busy chasin' my neighbor’s wife, Flo
Soap opera heaven without all the clues
Doublewide blues

Doublewide blues
I got the blues
Doublewide

Wild Bill the manager, he keeps to himself
The war took his smile like them pills took his health
Too old to run with the Klan anymore
U.S. flag hanging up outside of his door

I sit here watchin' all this nothing go on
I don’t get out much since momma's been gone
Sometimes it's nice having nothing to lose
Doublewide blues

Doublewide blues
I got the blues
Doublewide

Take me home boys
I think I’m drunk
