painting the town blue lyrics – x

bartender’s eyes are full of pity
as he tells her, “your alone and its 2: 30
all the chairs are on the table, and it’s time to close”
she said, “a minute ago, they were staring at me
where the h*ll did they go?”
and she went out to paint the town

roses are red
violence is too
everyone knows
i’m painting the town blue

“you look funny when you cry”
were his last words before he laughed and said goodby
she flipped a finger and so she picked her shoes up
picked up her feet and let them walk
hand in hand down the dirty hallway
then she went out to paint the town blue

roses are red
violence is too
everyone knows
i’m painting the town blue

was she beat?
did she suffer from a working hand?
she always hated his hacking cough
early in the morning
she walked to the greyhound to take a little ride
he could look in the corner of every town
but he wont find her
’cause she went out to paint the town

roses are red
violence is too
everyone knows
i’m painting the town blue
