Lil Wallet Picture (Buckner Richard)

Underspent And too young too I stumbled onto a picture of you You wild bitter tale All cherry oak and tears As the branches looked in The summer is done And we are too, dear Pull back the drape And let the silent light in Soon I'll be on that highway And damn this stretch of 99 That takes so many lives One of them was mine Hand me that lil wallet picture 1985 One more time The lights of the street Where I'd walk to you at night Were so blindly lit Yeah, there were four little flames His, mine, and yours, And the torch in the attic I woke up late And kissed you awake And as you packed up your load, There was one last look And then the uhaul broke free Now the ditches are flooded over the backroads And damn this stretch of 99 that takes so many lives One of them was mine Hand me that lil wallet picture 1985 One more time Underspent And too young too I stumbled onto a picture of you
