Back pocket (Sharron version)

Well I’ve got you coming out of my eyeballs

I’ve got you coming out of my ears

I met you with a nosebleed in the men’s stall

Now I’ve got you coming out in my tears


That whisky glass went dancing with your father

That big brass band is just around the bend

The bus driver said he don’t need the bother

But I swear to Christ he looks just like my friend


Well that town’s in my back pocket

And that pocket’s full of dust

And there’s an empty seat besides me girl where lord I wish you was


I wish my mouth would not run when the stakes get high

I left Belmont with rings around my eyes

I left your place my head shaped like a spoon

It was all mighty Christian of you


Well that town’s in my back pocket

And that pocket’s full of dust

And there’s an empty seat besides me girl where lord I wish you was


Well I like it when the snow melts off the mountains

I like it when the snow melts off the trees

I woke up with a start next to the window

Someone left a blanket there for me


Music and lyrics by Benjamin Adair Murphy (ASCAP)
