Miss Emily’s Picture
Recorded by John Conlee written by Red Lane

I wake up in the morning in a state of fright

On the wrong side of the bed all night
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
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

Look out my window and what do I see
Nothing but pain looking back at me
All that my future means to me
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
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
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

repeat #3
