PARRIS Island

all lyrics by gretchen seichrist 2017 copyright
ThelonesomeKid album The Last Days Of Sugar

oh they’re getting fed up with me
gonna to send me somewhere worse
he was going to be a marine.
she had white skin, a bob and purse

the way she said daddy though
like he was my dad too
he was going to be a marine.
everybody else was just a so and so.

you got the feeling she made it more glamorous than it really was, x 2
she came along not because she had a lot of guts
but more as a cover up!

i stayed with a black family
that gave me some macaroni
phone numbers and cash money
then i had to go find Mr.Jackson
at the junk store i begged
and he gave me some limited protection
after he closed up at five
he brought me threats and booze at night.

you got the feeling she made it more glamorous than it really was,
she came along not because she had a lot of guts
but more as a cover up!

Bitty and Crenshaw left town
i hid in the run down for weeks -
maybe it was all a dream.
Greg was arrested for a- wol - ing

he pledged his love and then he weeped
he was way too old for me
he looked like a night southern sky
and it’s not ro- ma- nti - cized

you got the feeling she made it more glamorous than it really was,
she came along not because she had a lot of guts
but more as a cover up!

kissed my hair and my skin
the crickets creaked
he was going to be a marine
at- Parris -Island- S. C.
