Rachel Harrington: Listen

Spokane

You sang to me last Sunday

Sang about that gold watch and chain

Now you’re driving back to Spokane

Tired of the wind and the rain

Met him back in Winslow

Dancing on the 3rd day of July

But he left me last December

On a night without a star in the sky 

Followed him to Vantage

Found the place where he broke down

He was standing at the river

Looking out on empty ground

I said you know I love you

Was the whiskey made my words so cruel

He said if the whiskey did the talking

Whiskey did the loving too
