Letra de The Westerner
The Westerner
I never crossed the Mississippi
Until I met you.
It all seemed so strange.
Yeah, the sun didn't set the same.
Once I had met all those I had cared to meet
I was ready to head back east
Where the brunette in the navy pea coat
had a scarf gently wrapped around her throat.
She points to the harbor darker than I had once thought.
And there was a glow from inside her apartment
Her boyfriend watching a game on TV,
Some Midwestern rivalry.
The harbor no darker than the days I spent starving for her
As I was lost out west stuck with a fool in a rabbit fur vest.
