monroe suede lyrics – ashley monroe

momma played piano in a pentecostal church
starin’ them snakes in the eye
daddy died drunk, left us all in a lurch
h*ll i did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by

a third grade education won’t bring you no luck
when you’re looking for a way to get paid
turned 14 and stole a pickup truck
couldn’t make it on minimum wage
couldn’t make it on minimum wage

well i almost got caught in tulsa town
had me one foot in the grave
ah they’re gonna die trying to track me down
but they’ll never catch monroe suede
no they’ll never catch monroe suede

well you can’t stay long when you’re living on the run
and the high sheriff’s lookin’ for you
never shot n*body with a loaded gun
but i found me a lover or two

well i almost got caught in tulsa town
had me one foot in the grave
ah they’re gonna die trying to track me down
but they’ll never catch monroe suede
no they’ll never catch monroe suede

momma still plays piano in the same ol’ church
helpin’ them sinners get saved
daddy died drunk, left us all in a lurch
and they call me monroe suede

well i almost got caught in tulsa town
had me one foot in the grave
ah they’re gonna die trying to track me down
but they’ll never catch monroe suede
no they’ll never catch monroe suede
