Darlin' Drops The Bomb

was a day like any other
working for the green back dollar
i put in my fifteen hours
took the pill and then i swallered
when i saw that she'd been crying
i could see something was wrong
i'll remember long as i live
the night that darlin' dropped the bomb

she had something she had to tell me
something i had to hear about
and i heard all she was saying
before words had left her mouth
as if i knew as if i always had known
familiar as a song
i'll remember long as i live
the night that darlin' dropped the bomb

i don't work like i used to
but i still swallow pills
i wash them down with a glass of water
and i think about her still
there is poison in every bottle
but the poison makes me strong
so i'll remember long as i live
