  • Adeline leaned against a table
    Barely able to stand
    Couple empty wine bottles
    Lit cigarette in her hand

    She said, "It's three A.M.
    Do we have to talk right now?
    Something tells me you ain't gonna put this down.
    Yeah I've been turning to the wine more these days,
    What you want me to say?"

    Call me a banjo
    Cause I don't mind getting played
    As long as it's your fingers
    Pulling the strings
    If I was a liar, I would not tell the truth
    Cause there ain't nothing left here for me and you

    Adeline slammed the screen door
    Sat out on the front porch
    Sunrise rolling in

    I should have let her cool down
    But I'm a fool now
    And I always play to win

    I said, "Ain't it like you to make a man feel small
    Do you love anything like tobacco and alcohol?
    I know life ain't easy and you had it rough.
    I had enough."

    Call me a banjo
    Cause I don't mind getting played
    As long as it's your fingers
    Pulling the strings
    If I was a liar, I would not tell the truth
    Cause there ain't nothing left here for me and you Writer/s: Graham Knibb
