Poem for my little lady
Sheâ€™s young and soft and kind
And she deserves a whole lot better
Than a guitar picking drifter
Who never gave a damn.
And if loving me is all
She ever wants some gonna let her
And Iâ€™ve tried to be kind of man
She thinks I am.
She makes those little kitten sounds
And (that) trembles when I love her
She makes me feel so bad and strong in me
She whispers how she can not wait
To be my babyâ€™s mother
Sheâ€™s the only glimpse of God
Iâ€™ve ever seen.
Her mama sure had warned her
Never take out with a poet
For poets travel rocky roads
In search of truth and life.
Iâ€™m the only blemish on
Her virgin soul but she donâ€™t know it
And I thank the Lord sheâ€™s lying gentle
By my side tonight.
I thank god she's lying gentle, by my side tonight
