It’s too late
Too late to call you
It’s too late and too nasty to say it.
It’s too long
Too long and curly
And the best of your heart just ain’t good.

Your man in his cactus cloak
Smokes Chesterfield daisies alone
Your weak Irish eyes count the hours
As he reaches your chest

Your chest
Chesterfield eyes
Chesterfield bones
And I hear you sing “oooh”

I want a new name
A new name to call you
And a dark day, a dark day to drive
I want a grey horse
A grey horse to give you
And I’ll call it Old Fog in your honor

Your man from the Island Pass
Does he ride just as hard as the last?
To your Chesterfield tongue in its mansion?
In the morning you’ll strip for the best

The best man to sing,
The last man to leave.

You alone, with your Chesterfield eyes
And Chesterfield bones,
And I watch you sing “oooh”
