Laura Cantrell - Queen Of The Coast Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • She was the Queen of the Coast back in nineteen sixty five,
  • Prettier 'n most, she could keep a room alive,
  • With the catch in her voice and the beehive on her head.
  • Do you remember anything she ever said.
  • Well, some stars fade faster than the rest,
  • And the promise wore off though she did her best.
  • She finally looked around for somethin' else to do.
  • What she found was a man who needed what she knew.
  • Have you forgotten? Have you forgiven?
  • Tell me are you livin' just a little in your past every day.
  • Time sure has changed you; it's walked right on by you.
  • Does it satisfy you to have so little to say?
  • For the next ten years she rode around on the bus.
  • She did washin' and ironin' and pickin' up.
  • She had a place to stand at the back of the stage.
  • She was there every night, lookin' her age.
  • She lent her voice, but she gave her heart.
  • And, I guess, that must've been the hardest part.
  • She figured out exactly what was goin' on,
  • All the love she had given for a song.
  • Then things unravelled like they usually do.
  • She got her old heart busted up by husband, number two.
  • Have you forgotten? Have you forgiven?
  • Tell me are you livin' just a little in your past every day.
  • Time sure has changed you; it's walked right on by you.
  • Does it satisfy you to have so little to say?
  • Instrumental Break.
  • I'm not quite sure when she got back on the bus.
  • But she's still washin' and ironin' and pickin' up.
  • If you look all the way to the back of the stage,
  • She's standin' at her mic, lookin' her age.
  • In a roadstop in Reno at supper time,
  • The waitress comes over with a look in her eye.
  • Says: "I saw you in Modesto almost thirty years ago,
  • "An' I can still remember every song in your show."
  • "Please Help Me, I'm Falling." "Don't Come Home A-Drinking."
  • Well, there's a pair of swingin' doors for every cowboy sweetheart tonight.
  • Time sure has changed you; it's walked right on by you.
  • Does it satisfy you to have so little to say?
