​A Woman Named Trudy

This song is by The Hive Dwellers and appears on the album Hewn From The Wilderness (2012).

If you saw what I was dealt you wouldn't think me a lesser man
If I cashed in my chips after throwing in my hand
I keep anteing up forgiveness, anteing up pain
While the pot is claimed by hardness and ill gotten game

Lord game me hell and then planted down a woman
As strong as an oak
She proved to be will to stand up solid
As we eat out a living
Facing the struggles of life without no brooding

Lord gave me hell and a woman named Trudy
Lord gave me hell and a woman named Trudy
Lord gave me hell and a woman named Trud-y

Lord gave me hell and a woman named Trudy
I never knew what a good woman could do for me
I saw this good woman serving bluesy doody
Making up for lost time
And old heart shape she proved me one slate
From the world of instant pleasure
...Still plenty thirsty

Trudy, Trudy, Trud-y

When life started dealing
It was from the bottom of the deck
I took what I was given
And earned life's respect
What providence I heard
I was raised not to question
Our lot in life is to stuggle with what we have
And made due

Lord gave me hell and a woman named Trudy
Lord gave me hell and a woman named Trudy
Lord gave me hell and a woman named Trud-y
Trudy, Trudy, Trud-y...
