Rachel Harrington: Listen

Little Pink

(Rachel Harrington)
February 15, 2011

Hey little pink

What do you think

You’re a long time making up your mind

I used to think

You were the prettiest little thing

Ever the sun shone on

You can’t find love in a band of gold

His eyes be blue or brown

Til he’s at the top of the gallows

Crying baby come get me down

I never will marry

No logging man

Or a man who drives a four horse team

I’d rather marry

A railroad man

who drives his wheels by steam

15 cents

is all the money that I got

a dollar is all I crave

15 cents

and some good ol morphine

to carry me to my grave
