Cold Floors, Dark Windows

The smokes and the coffee
On the table between us
These are the things that we shared
The biscuits, the gravy
The Saturday whiskey
Our little son, he was still bair’d

Non-smokers, non-drinkers
Need not apply
To rent the room
That once was my heart
Non-smokers, non-drinkers
Need not apply
The floors are cold
And the windows are dark

(Repeat Chorus)

I asked did she know
All that we had in common
The figurines, the five year plan
With you, she replied,
I had a gut full of common
And now I got feller named Dan

(Chorus twice)

I hit her with a shovel
When she turned to sass me
For my crime I will hang at sunrise
And now here I sit
Eating my last supper
‘Fore I lay down and close my tired eyes

(Chorus twice)
