LUCILLE NO.2 (Roger Bowling / Hal Bynum / Sheb Wooley) Ben Colder - 1979 In a little clapped-out bar, she sipped on a Lone Star She started to fume and to fuss I hurried to meet ‘er, I took out a ticket And told her I missed the damned bus When the beer finally hit her, she started to titter Soon I was tittering too, having Lone Star and laughter When in walked this big Texan He messed up our love on a hot afternoon As soon as he spied us, he came up beside us With a hand that was big as a ham He took me by the shoulder, said “Are you Ben Colder?” I said, “Frankly, I don’t think I am” This big hairy fellah was a Texas gorilla For a minute I thought I was dead Then he started laughin’ and pointing and scratchin’ He turned to the woman and he said Woo-hoo-hoo-hah-hah-hah, what’ll I tell ya You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille They just brought in a gusher out there in the field Nothin’ but good times and drinkin’ this good wine And sleepin’ as late as I feel You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille Hah-hah-hah-hah, aarrgh As soon as he left there, I ordered some more beer But she didn’t drink hers at all Her eyeballs got glazy, she went kind o’ crazy And wrote dirty words on the wall I couldn’t hold her, ‘cause she pee’d on my shoulder Said, It’s your fault that I’m here with you I gave up the good life and bein’ a rich man’s wife For a few lousy pretzels and beer” And outside in the street we could hear You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille Just when I bought me a new set o’ wheels ‘Stead o’ cleanin’ out the cow lot, you’d be drivin’ your own yacht Baby, you blew the whole deal You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2010)
