Lyrics

Her husband robs banks

So your husband robs banks, then for kicks he left town

Your children's father was arrested,  smells like  Tacoma town

In the jailhouse they use torcher, but this was long before that

 made bond with her last 3,000 dollars and he left her flat

 

Her husband robs banks, and he went on the run

Down through Colorado, on to Arizona

Made it to New Mexico, that's as far as he could go

They said that somebody got killed,

But Stacey had no time for that

 

She says things are looking up

She DRINKS life from a measuring cup

She says her glass is half full, you can't beat that

Her hearts been breaking up, her whole world is shaking up...

She leaves no door left unopened, and gives the lord thanks

 

Her husband robs banks, and that does no good now

He's out robbing on the west coast, yeah you know the neighborhood

Her husband robs banks, you thinks she'd be mad

And the tragedy is her children don't have a dad

And the tragedy is her children don't have a dad,    Solo

 

She says things are looking up

She DRINKS life from a measuring cup

She says her glass is half full, you can't beat that

Her hearts been breaking up, her whole world is shaking up...

She leaves no door left unopened, and gives the lord thanks

 

her husband robs banks, and he's been on the fly

baby if he's ever coming back, say he's gonna do time

all the late nights gambling, her will is her lords

73,000 dollars underneath her floorboards

 

Now she can make ends meet for a month or two?

She goes on her own little streak, a mother does what she has to do

Yeah your husband robs banks, all you can say is thanks

She stays home with the children, she don't know where he goes

The Tacoma bank pressed charges, that was years before that

News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

 

Look underneath the floorboard darling...
