Big Talkin' Woman

lyrics

Big talkin’ woman

He’s down on his luck
She’s colder than a coffin
He’s trying to get back up
But the world just won’t soften

She lays into him hard
Every night when he comes in
“Where you been big fella
Late night at work again?”

He rolls his eyes enough
To pull them from the sockets
He flips out the lining of his
Empty front pockets

The gesture isn’t lost
And she won’t soon forget
That her momma told her
This was imminent

Big talkin’ woman
Hard headed man
It don’t matter what you’re saying darling he ain’t listenin’

He’s sleeping on the couch
But he ain’t really sleeping
Just tossing and turning
And late night tvin’

His mind replays the scene
What he wished he would have said
But the moments gone
Like a broken thread

Big talkin’ woman
Hard headed man
It don’t matter what you’re saying darling he ain’t listenin’

He rolls out of bed
Around 11 am
His head is steady pounding
From last night’s Gin

She pours it on again
About him staying out all night
How her momma told her
And how her momma was right

Big talkin’ woman
Hard headed man
It don’t matter what you’re saying darling he ain’t listenin’
