Kathy

Somewhere in the parking lot
Of a strip mall in the ‘burbs
Kathy sits alone in the back of her car
She’s had a long day and
She just wants to find a little time
To watch all the shows that she missed from last week

Well, I don’t guess it’s easier now
Are you feeling kind of old?
Thinking that you never grew up
Well, no one ever does
It passed you by and now you just
Try to settle down

Her husband comes home after dark
After watching the ballgame
Just drinking beer in his chair, falls asleep
A pretty good insurance salesman
And he drives a big ole truck
He don’t mind the voices inside of his head

Well, I don’t guess it’s easier now
Are you feeling kind of old?
Thinking that you never grew up
Well, no one ever does
It passed you by and now you just
Try to settle down

Sitting on the the porch out front
Kathy’s far away from here
Smoking cigarettes and playing solitaire
The weather’s being easy now
And the night is cool and nice
The sound of a breeze blowing leaves ‘cross the yard

Well, I don’t guess it’s easier now
Are you feeling kind of old?
Thinking that you never grew up
Well, no one ever does
It passed you by and now you just
Try to settle down
