Rich in Misery

©2010 James Odle , Jr. / Jody Dickey / Terry Lynn Falcone

She appears to him each night

like an angel bathed in pale moonlight

every night he made her cry

till he told her baby blues good-bye

convincing his stubborn mind

that he did the only right thing this time

she deserved diamonds and gold

instead of poor country girl down a old dirt road

Poor little rich man

Counting them blessings

Dreaming up plans

Always keeping him guessin’

Now he stands

Alone with his memories

He’s Just a poor little rich man

Rich in misery

Well she moved out to Frisco

slingin’ them beers in a topless go-go

but one night in the stage lights

a man saw more than the usual sights

now he’s given her a brand new name

and she’s well on her way to all the fortune and fame

drops a line to him now and then

with a prayer for the future that might have been

(repeat chorus)

On a hot sleepless August night

packed up a bag and caught a red-eye flight

and as his eyes filled with lonesome tears

he realized he’d been lovin’ her all these years

took a while just to track her down

to that shabby little go-go west of town

they knew her well, but that very day.......

she ran off with a Mormon headed Utah way

(repeat chorus)
