Miss Emily’s Picture Recorded by John Conlee written by Red Lane
C I wake up in the morning in a state of fright
On the wrong side of the bed all night F C Clinging to the broken heart inside my head F G7 Open my eyes and I move my hand F G7 Round her pillow to the night stand F G7 C And straighten Miss Emily's picture by my bed
Go to the office the works piled up
Pour three fingers bourbon in my coffee cup F C And cry on my best friend's shoulder down the hall F G7 Feels so lonely when I close the door F G7 Bite my nails and I walk the floor F G7 C And straighten Miss Emily's picture on my wall
F C Look out my window and what do I see G7 Nothing but pain looking back at me C F C All that my future means to me Dm Is tossing yesterday's love out into the wind F G7 C And straighten Miss Emily's picture now and then
Leave my office and I go downtown
To a little bar we all hang around F C Laugh drink shoot pool and have a ball F G7 When the laughter stops and the hurting takes hold F G7 Reach in my pocket for my billfold F G7 C And show Miss Emily's picture to 'em all
I stagger in the house and I slam the door
Scatter my clothes all over the floor F C Wishing I could do the same thing in my head F G7 Drink a beer and I eat a bite F G7 And just before I turn out the light F G7 C Straighten Miss Emily's picture by my bed
