Tannin Bed Song
Maria lays in the tannin bed And reads the Tuesday news She's down there every week at the Same time with the same ol' blues She reads the funny papers And then the classifieds And if she ain't too sleepy there's the Weather report on the flip side And this Kansas life is a hard one For a girl from Miami You're just staring out at the oil fields And that's all that I can see Her old man's in the same place Since the company let him go Just sippin' the Pabst Blue Ribbon and Cussin' Amoco Maria drives home From the tannin bed And the black clouds Roll across the sky She pulls into the trailer park, pops the Trunk and calls the kids outside Said there's a twister comin' And you haven't got a clue I ain't going to sit here in this double Wide and wait around for you Cause I'm taking the microwave oven And I'm takin' the color TV And I'm packin' up the Chevy With the kids and what's left of me This Kansas life is a hard one For a girl from Miami Just staring out at the oil fields
