Painkiller Blues

The woman that I loved has crawled away
She stole my kids from me too
She took all the best stuff I ever had
And left me just the painkiller blues

She swore she’d be there ‘til the end
I swear she swore that through and through
But she took that train to Buffalo --
after that boys I just don’t know
All I know is these painkiller blues

Blinding lights on bedroom walls
Voices in the dark
Beads of sweat --a pounding brow
my brain ripping slowly apart

I’m going to the station in the morning
And yes, I see exactly what I should do
Gonna find that other man,
cut him down right where he stands
You can blame it on these painkiller blues
