And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine
He would spend it on the ponies He would spend it on the girls Buy his mother gin and roses For her poor old hennaed curls And when his wife said, "Hey now What did you get for me?" He socked her in the chopper Such a sweet, sweet guy was he [Chorus] And her tears flowed like wine Yes, her tears flowed like wine She's a real sad tomato She's a busted valentine Knows her mama done told her That her man is darned unkind How he loved the old race horses He would bet them every day One day he caught a winner And the cabbage wasn't hay He indulged in fancy spending Ordered rings, cars, and furs But alas, alack Like a stab in the back She found out they were not hers [Chorus] He got mixed up with a Maisie He got mixed up with a Flo So Flo shoved him in the river He'll not get mixed up no more His wife then draped herself in black That showed her figure fine Then she cussed him out, the two-faced guy No insurance could she find [Chorus]
