New Orleans - Parker McCollum

Woke up this mornin' fifty miles from New Orleans
And I could not find my baby
My wallet or blue jeans
And all I got's what I believe
And a shoe for kickin' rocks out by the road
Well I've seen you twice before
But I will not see you again
I know it's you that left me stranded out in nowhere Lousian'
From the swamp out by the highway
To the other side of Houston, here I go

Oh, babe, why can't you see?
You're the only thing as heartless as me
That I ever met
Ever since you left the only place I'd never leave

Well another thing I'll never do
Is love you like I did
I left the lights on for ya, Mama
You told me I was a kid
How the hell'd you have the heart
To never let me know I was alone?
Drove all the way to Texas with us dancin' in my head
Just preachin' to the window all the things I never said
Got two more waitin' on me
You ain't nothin' like I ever seen back home

Oh, babe, why can't you see?
You're the only thing as heartless as me
That I ever met
Ever since you left the only place I'd never leave

I'm out here on the edge of town
There ain't no lookin' back
'Bout eighty pages to the wind blowin' white smoke from the stacks
You can find me on the front porch
Of the A-frame out in Big Hill gettin' high

Oh, babe, why can't you see?
You're the only thing as heartless as me
That I ever met
Ever since you left the only place I'd never leave

Oh, babe, why can't you see?
You're the only thing as heartless as me
That I ever met
Ever since you left the only place I'd never leave
