"Fat man sitting on a little stool,
takes the money from my hand
as his eyes take a walk all over you"
"Honey don't walk out, I'm too drunk to follow"
Fabulous. Simple, but it gets the message across loud and clear...in only nine words.
From the Southern Accents album, the song is "Rebels" by Tom Petty.
"Honey don't walk out, I'm too drunk to follow
You know you won't feel this way tomorrow
Well, maybe a little rough around the edges
Or inside a little hollow,
I get faced with some things, sometimes
That are so hard to swallow, hey!
I was born a rebel, down in Dixie
On a Sunday mornin'
Yeah with one foot in the grave
And one foot on the pedal, I was born a rebel
She picked me up in the mornin', and she paid all my tickets
Then she screamed in the car
Left me out in the thicket
Well I never woulda dreamed
That her heart was so wicked
Yeah but I keep comin' back
'Cause it's so hard to kick it, hey, hey, hey
Even before my father's father
They called us all rebels
While they burned our cornfields
And left our cities leveled
I can still feel the eyes of those blue-bellied devils
Yeah, when I'm walking round at night
Through the concrete and the metal, hey, hey, hey"
One foot in the grave and one foot on the pedal...well that line's not bad either.
