Slightly Battered and Abused - Keith Birmingham




I woke up this morning with the title running through my head. I wrote and put the chords to this song this afternoon. I will try to do my usual rough recording of it asap. Also, I plan to post several of the recordings I have on Sound Clound here on my blog over the next few days.

Slightly Battered and Abused
Copyright 2013, by Keith Birmingham

Slightly battered and abused,
And, today he's feeling used.
He'll be rollin' into town sometime tonight.
His old lady's done him wrong,
Stayin' out 'til after dawn.
And, tonight somebody's gonna pay the price.

There's a gun under his shirt.
There's more bullets in the dash.
Blood is in his eyes, he's ready for a fight.
You'd better get it through your head,
Or, your gonna wind up dead,
Gas your truck up and get rollin’ down the road.

Well, he knows that your to blame
And, it’s driving him insane.
And, he’s coming here to put an end to you.

Well, she should not have done him wrong,
He has loved her for so long,
Doing all that he could do to treat her right.
Well, she had her little fling,
But buddy, you don't mean a thing.    
And, tonight he aims to end your carefree life.

Well, he knows that your to blame
And, it’s driving him insane.
And, he’s coming here to put an end to you.

Don't  you be a foolish man,
For a carefree one night stand.
Well, you'd better hit the road, don't hesitate.
You'd better get your butt in gear
Long before the sky turns black.
It's time to hit the road. You'd better not come back.
It's time to hit the road. You'd better not come back.
