lyrics

I could tell by the way he stared at his drink
that he was from out of town
I guessed he came from a joint far out west
no smile to cover his brow
im not one to go outside of my place
in this bar on the cold side of hell
but I fixed up my tie and picked up my suitcase
he was screaming of a story to tell
I said "friend you've got some burdens
the kind that drive men insane
ill buy you a glass of burboun,
if you tell me the devils name?"
he said "I'm a retired soldier
but haven't stopped fighting yet
I just got my purple heart broken
from a woman named lizette

she knew how to make a boy feel like a man
but act like a little girl
what was her endgame what was the plan
me or the whole of my soul?"

I thought boy did she do him a number
he's likely one of a few
I said "sounds like a lousy lover"
to try and lighten the mood
but the band they kept on playing
as the bar lights were cooling down
I had no place to go to
so I decided to stick around
he said, "I managed a ride to this city
to cheat and sing the blues
didnt bring nothing with me
cus I've got nothing to loose"
"she made me a man and made me a babe
and gave me plenty to regret
cant do nothing but live in the memory
of that woman named lizette"

"she knew how to make a boy feel like a man
but act like a little girl
what was her endgame what was the plan
me or the whole of the soul?"
