​The Jukebox As She Turned

This song is by Nic Jones and appears on the live compilation album Unearthed (2001).

Now all the boys down at Smokey's Bar they could easily understand
How Judy left without a word, but not without a man.
That old routine that she had going was like the sun so sure
That by surprise just may not rise but it always has before.
And I still remember what was on the jukebox as she turned:
The dobro part out of Cheating Heart. She never has returned.

She snapped the little plated latch and she closed her pocket book.
And then paying for what she had drunk, she gave all us boys a look.
And something in that little glance sent creeps throughout the room,
No-one stared or even dared to breathe or even move.
And I still remember what was on the jukebox as she turned:
The dobro part out of Cheating Heart. She never has returned.

I cannot say just what others thought, ah, but I can likely guess.
Well they were probably scared of where, just where, she'd take what we'd confessed.
And I still remember what was on the jukebox as she turned:
The dobro part out of Cheating Heart. She never has returned.

So now that good old gang down at Smokey's Bar they've just about busted up,
With no-one here left to drink our tears or to fill out empty cup.
And I still remember what was on the jukebox as she turned:
The dobro part out of Cheating Heart. She never has returned.
