PAINTED GIRLS AND WINE (Jack Ripley) Ed Bruce - 1968 Faron Young - 1969 Oh, it's funny how wine makes fools out of men around women And it's funny how women love men till their money is gone As I went down to Juarez town to buy my love a ring I stopped me by the tavern where the painted women sing Says I, "I'll take one look inside, but I'll not touch that wine And in the morn' I'll buy the ring and Mary will be mine" Oh, it's funny how wine makes fools out of men around women And it's funny how women love men while the wine flows on Yes, it's funny how wine makes fools out of men around women And it's funny how women love men till their money is gone I walked me in and sat me down beside the candle light Then a painted girl walked by and said, "Are you alone tonight?" I showed her all the money that would buy my Mary's ring And soon the wine began to flow and we began to sing Now I walk the streets of Juarez town with Mary on my mind But ev'ry window I look me in, there's painted girls and wine I can't go home to Mary cause I don't have the ring So I'll stay here in Juarez town no matter what it brings Oh, it's funny how wine makes fools out of men around women And it's funny how women love men while the wine flows on Yes, it's funny how wine makes fools...........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2012)
