One old brown shoe falls in slow motion
And the bedsprings hover right above your head
As bed springs do, when you're beneath them
Someone else just climbed into your bed
By the time she thought you'd probably got to Phoenix
She'd arranged for your shoes to be filled
Well, you've got your pride and a blue-steel '45
Waited for the other shoe to fall
And you waited for the other shoe to fall
Dig a double grave out in the meadow
And you'll curse the rain that turns the dirt to mud
You'll take 35 south towards Laredo
And you'll try to find a doctor that'll prescribe an elixir
That'll make everything better except your late wife and her lover
By the time she thought you'd probably got to Phoenix
She'd sealed her fate and gotten herself killed
You've got your pride and a blue-steel '45
Waited for the other shoe to fall
And you waited for the other shoe to fall
And you waited for the other shoe to fall
