Standing here with a tale to tell

I might as well tell to you

Nothing near Wagnerian

As Terminator Two

Its an old one about a little dirt farm girl

Who wanted to get out for good

Shed do anything to keep that dream

Shed do anything she could


Who was she

To feel so free

With her heart on her sleeve

She just couldnt believe...

There was a price to pay

Her very first chance to escape that year

Came when the circus had come to town

She wound up in bed and quite madly in love

With some rubber nose juggling clown

He promised he'd return for her come next spring

And he swore that he wouldn't forget

Needless to say come the following May

More than her appetite was getting wet

She proceeded unheeded and quite undefeated

To the trailer behind the tents

And her heart began to scar at his trailer door

She was gonna go wherever he went


He arrived at last about half past

With a girl under every arm

But all of this in itself could have been innocent as hell

But what began to cause her alarm

Was when he locked the door behind him like she always bee

She was standing alone in the dirt

And her eyes were so dry that she began to cry

And something began to hurt

She wanted to tear the hair out of her head

Yeah and she wanted to wish that she was dead

But a voice in her just would not let her drop

And her heart began to break but it didn't stop

Run all you're races

And don't you fear

You and I

Are getting out of here

And well survive

That I guarrantee

Cause you don't need much

When all you have is me.

She listened to the little voice in her

And then she hit the road

Free at last and with just a tiny scar

And finally on her own

No one knows what became of her

All we know is she got away

And though there really ain't no guarantees down here

I like to think she did okay


That there's a price to pay(4x)
