lyrics

Cut and Run


Teenage mother bringing home the bread and butter in a myriad of shady ways
because a boy, named Ben, brought a bitter end
to a life-long dream of the stage
she was a southern belle and the boy meant well
but he left her in a fit of rage
now it's a big bad world for a small town girl
just trying to earn an honest wage
and baby says

She don't mind the dirty looks
and she won't tell you her real name
she's not afraid to bait the hook
she's a product of a hustle
cut and run
before you put a young girl to shame

Holly-roller-daddy's her controller, sewing evil in her heart
he's a big man too, with a small world-view
fucking with her from the start
well, I confess, she's a real hot mess
but baby ain't nobody's fool
although she can't afford to even praise the Lord
'cause faith is such a heavy tool
and baby says

She don't mind the dirty looks
and she won't tell you her real name
she's not afraid to bait the hook
she's a product of a hustle
cut and run
before you put a young girl to shame
oh, it's a God-damn shame
