lyrics

I sold my soul for a coupe deville.
Saved up all my money and my dollar bills.
But a redneck suffragette, trash-talking train wreck, took off with my wheels and my honky-tonk shoes.

I followed her down to the penny arcade - a misleading masquerade.
But the psychotic, neurotic, dirty dancing woman pulled me in a tug of war, but I had to let go

I bit my tongue and I swallowed my pride. The crimson dynamo took me for a ride.
But the law breaking, drug taking, God forsaken girl’s shaking- crocodile tears won’t wash with me.

She brought me back my automobile. She gave me the keys and I grabbed the wheel.
But the bloodsucking, nunchucking, prima donna, if-you-wanna, told me not to pick a fight that you’re gonna lose.

Low-life, honey pie, sweet as lemon, cold as ice.
Love-struck, for a ride, dump truck, on the side.
Blond hair, evil eye, pick your pocket on the sly.
Quick fix, nip-n-tuck, supersonic pick-me-up.

Low-life, honey pie, sweet as lemon, cold as ice.
Love-struck, for a ride, dump truck, on the side.
Blond hair, evil eye, pick your pocket on the sly.
Quick fix, nip-n-tuck, supersonic pick-me-up.

Redneck suffragette, trash-talking train wreck.
One shade short of crazy with a copy of the evening news.
