lyrics

YOUR HUSBAND LED ME TO YOU
© Bob Wright


(Chorus)
He was tall he was mean just a whiskey machine
People shook when he came into view
But as much as he drank I still have him to thank
Cause your husband led me to you


The dispatcher said there was somebody dead
On the floor of a bar across town
So I fired the lights and punched up the siren
And turned that big cruiser around

When I got to the bar they were huddled by cars
The neon was bleeding and broke
A small-statured man with a gun by his hand
Sat at the bar all alone

But he motioned me in and he said with a grin
He ain’t hurtin’ no one no more
I looked down to see a body so big
It covered up most of the floor

(Chorus)

Every one swore that the man had no choice
The bully had beaten him down
And it wasn’t just once he would do it for fun
Every time he came around

So I took them downtown and we wrote it all down
There was one other thing left to do
They told me his wife was quiet and nice
And I set out to give her the news

I worked up my nerve but she’d already heard
She was covered with bruises and pride
She said I can’t cry and it near broke my heart
And I see her now most every night
(chorus)

They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
