DONALD AND LYDIA (John Prine) John Prine - 1971 Small town, bright lights, Saturday night Pinballs and pool halls flashing their light Makin' change behind the counter in a penny arcade Sat the fat girl daughter of Virginia and Ray...........Lydia Lydia hid her thoughts like a cat Behind her small eyes sunk deep in her fat She read a romance magazine up in her room It felt just like Sunday on Saturday afternoon But dreamin' just comes natural Like the first breath from a baby Like sunshine feedin' daisies Like the love hidden deep in your heart Bunk beds, shaved heads, Saturday night A warehouse of strangers with sixty watt lights Starin' through the ceilin', just wanting to be Lay one of too many, a young PFC...........Donald There were spaces between Donald and whatever he said Strangers had forced him to live in his head He envisioned the details of a romantic scene After midnight in the stillness of the barrack's latrine But dreamin' just comes natural Like the first breath from a baby Like sunshine feedin' daisies Like the love hidden deep in your heart Hot love, cold love, no love at all A portrait of guilt is hung on a wall Nothin' is wrong, nothin' is right Donald and Lydia made love that night..........Love They made love in the mountains, they made love in the streams They made love in the valleys, they made love in their dreams But when they was finished there was nothin' to say 'Cause mostly they made love from ten miles away But dreamin' just comes natural Like the first breath from a baby Like sunshine feedin' daisies Like the love hidden deep in your heart (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2012)
