In a bar in Toledo, Across from the depot, On a bar stool she took off her ring. I thought I'd get closer, So I walked on over. I sat down and asked her her name. When the drinks finally hit her, She said,"I'm no quitter, But I finally quit living on dreams. I'm hungry for laughter, And here ever after I'm after whatever the other life brings." In the mirror I saw him, And I closely watched him. I thought how he looked out of place. He came to the woman Who sat there beside me. He had a strange look on his face. His big hands were calloused, He looked like a mountain, For a minute I thought I was dead. But he started shaking, His big heart was breaking, He turned to the woman and said, [Chorus] "You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille With four hungry children and a crop in the field. I've had some bad times, Lived through some sad times, But this time the hurtin' won't heal. You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille. After he left us, I ordered more whiskey. I thought how she'd made him look small. From the lights of the barroom To the rented hotel room We walked without talking at all. She was a beauty, But when she came to me She must have thought I'd lost my mind. I couldn't hold her, For the words that he told her Kept comin' back time after time. [Chorus]
