THAT'S ALL SHE WROTE
music and lyrics copyright 2004 by Stephen J. Deasy

Gimme a ticket on the slowest train
I got nothing but time and too many memories on the brain
Lonely days are here
Pour me one more beer
While I read you what she wrote me, and I quote
She said, “your love was like a poison that I drank so long ago
And I think I finally found the antidote”
That’s all for now
That’s all folks
That’s all she wrote

I don’t care how much money I got to spend
I’ll drink up all the whiskey in the world if this really is the end
My baby wrote me a letter
For worse and not for better
And this is what she said, I know it by rote
She said, “your kisses, they used to be much sweeter than wine
Now they kinda taste like creosote”
That’s all for now
That’s all folks
That’s all she wrote

She wrote me that she couldn’t live with me anymore
I’m sorry that I made her feel that way
She wrote me that she didn’t want me hanging ‘round her door
Listen mister can’t you see that’s why I just can’t stay
I got to get away

So I don’t need no ticket on no aeroplane
Gonna get me on a slow boat to China will be my sad refrain
All by myself alone
Away from her heart of stone
I’ll just climb on board and far away I’ll float
She said, “that ship’s already sailed just in case you didn’t know
And, like you ain’t got any oars on your rowboat”
That’s all for now
That’s all folks
That’s all she wrote

That’s all for now
That’s all folks
That’s all she wrote

That’s all for now
That’s all folks
That’s all she wrote
