hungry love lyrics – jessica andrews

back in the woods in a shotgun shack
right above the railroad tracks
in old junk cars and tractor parts
marylou she grew up
hungry love

her daddy, he left with a new barmaid
mama’s in town? cause she loves to play
marylou, she’s all alone with an old stray dog
that she loves to hug
hungry love

to get away from it all she puts her headphones on
and turns the music way up loud
the first boy who comes along and pays her any mind at all
will be the only love she’s ever found
it’s in her blood, hungry love

marylou turned seventeen
with a baby bouncing on her knee
her sweetheart left in a pickup truck
so she did just what her mama had done
hungry love

she spent her nights out in the bars
while her baby sat and watched the stars
with an old rag doll she loves so much
growing up too fast, too tough
hungry love

to get away from it all she puts her headphones on
and turns the music way up loud
the first boy who comes along and pays her any mind at all
will be the only love she’s ever found
it’s in her blood, hungry love

oh, oh, yeah, hungry love
but it’s in her blood
hungry love

oh, oh, yeah
well, it’s in her blood
hungry love

back in the woods in a shotgun shack
right above the railroad tracks
