Painting The Town Blue

This song is by John Doe and appears on the album Keeper (2011).

The bartender's eyes are full of pity
As he tells her, you're alone & it's 2:30
All the chairs are on the table
And it's time to close
She said a minute ago they were staring at me
Where the hell'd they go?
She went out to paint the town.

Roses are red
Violence is too
Everyone knows
I'm painting the town blue

You look funny when you cry
Were his last words
As he turned & said goodbye
She flipped her finger
And so she picked her shoes up
Picked up her feet
And let them walk hand in hand
Down the dirty hallway

Then she went out to paint the town.

Roses are red
Violence is too
Everyone knows
I'm painting the town blue

Was she beat, did she suffer from a working hand
She always hated his hacking cough
Early in the morning
She went to the greyhound
To take a little ride
He can look in the corner of every town
But he won't find her
'Cause she went out to paint the town.

Roses are red
Violence is too
Everyone knows
I'm painting the town blue
