  • Go on and put on that dress that all the bad boys like
    I know your daddy ain't home so ride with me tonight
    You always wind up here in a puddle of tears

    Them boys are out and they're angry and they're lookin' for blood
    In the back of a blue old pick up truck
    You've got nowhere to go although you're all gussied up

    There's so much whiskey in his Coke it'll make her nose bend
    But she swears that his love is a damn God send
    She's known God since she was a child

    She used to play in the yard and she would dream of one day
    'Til the world came around and took her dreaming away
    Told her how to dress and act and smile

    She's an Oklahoma Smokeshow
    He's an asshole from back home
    She'll never make it out alive

    That small town bar scene
    Where small vices kill your big dreams
    He'd take you home but he's too drunk to drive

    I've been here, I've been up all night
    Thinkin' 'bout a life with you and I
    One you'll never know
    'Cause you're a small town smokeshow

    Well, I've been here, I've been up all night
    Thinkin' 'bout a life with you and I
    One you'll never know
    'Cause you're a small town smokeshow

    Go on and put on that dress that all the bad boys like
    I know your daddy ain't home so ride with me tonight
    You always wind up here in a puddle of tears

    Them boys are out and they're angry and they're looking for blood
    In the back of a blue old pick up truck
    You've got nowhere to go although you're all gussied up Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
