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

Francis comes from a long line of kneelers
kneelers for a long time beg forgivers
lamp lighters -she carries their suitcase
AND IT’S all down through the ages

Ray’s got paper cuts- two left hands
and blues that got used in his bed
he talks it out thumbing THROUGH
the catalog for a lathe

pay tribute x2

those guys make a fire in the bowl
a golden fact checker- looks like the motel was wrong
take their dirty inspections in a second
over all their good intentions

with white sandals -you march the stairs
say it again and i’ll make you care
here we go - confederate know - it - alls
Pinesol scent wafting
through the great wide wails

pay tribute ……
pay tribute ……
D a/f # Em
he in perpetuity is the unbelieved truth……
he in perpetuity is the unbelieved truth……bm

somewhere on a big cold screen
they loop the soul- sick whole thing
out if the field a baby swings
with the grass blade tall and
tickling her soles…

take the soap from the soap rest
all he asks is he likes the girls to visit
in fact he likes you the best
and he knows everything= kid
that you don’t have left

pay tribute ……
pay tribute ……
