lyrics

Molly was an orphan saved from a flood 
Meaner than the water that turned dirt to mud
She had the backbone I had the time
She held the needle and I smoked the dime
She held the needle and I smoked the dime

Let me tell you boys when she was yelling at me
I won a river from the heart of a stream
She shook my feathers and riled my dog
Curled my fingers and drained my pond
She curled my fingers and drained my pond

Lived on nothing but fast food and wine
Cried at commercials, blamed it on pride
She never got tired but slept through the night
With a cigarette burning, the ash held fine
Cigarette burning and the ash held fine

Let me tell you boys when she was laughing at me
I won a river from the heart of a stream
She shook my feathers and riled my dog
Curled my fingers and drained my pond
She curled my fingers and drained my pond

Oh lead me to the heart of the pine
It’s just and easy lie
Getting by

We got old and she got bored
Traded in her needle for a look at the lord
Three weeks later she was off of her knees
Saying all those believers can never be pleased
All those believers can never be pleased
