Lyrics

They made their home in the old town cat house
Just down the road from where it all began
Now they’re takin’ her to church every Sunday
Raisin’ her righteous and doin’ the best they can

Lady Evelyn rules with the power
Fist of iron, cross of gold
Wynona Taylor just sits at her mercy
Try’na keep her baby girl away from the devil’s hold


And this old house
Will always smell like sinnin’
‘Cause even when it’s over
The heartache’s just beginnin’
How bitter the end
When you’re looking for your long lost men
You can usually find ‘em
In the faces of lonely women


The years have gone like a burned-out pipe dream
That little girl ahas grown up proud
But when the boys start hollerin’ at her
All the house’s heartaches reach up and pull her down

And she’s callin’ to the ghost of her father
Prayin' pretty please, set me free
Cause if I stay here one minute longer
I wont even hesitate to pull that old gun on me


And this old house
Will always smell like sinnin’
‘Cause even when it’s over
The heartache’s just beginnin’
How bitter the end
When you’re looking for your long lost men
You can usually find ‘em
In the faces of lonely women
