It’s Really Been Fun, 5/24/01

Would you give me five minutes, to give you the reasons-
That you shouldn’t leave me behind?
We’ve followed the circuit for nearly twelve seasons,
And fate hasn’t treated us kind.

You drove when I couldn’t, from bones that were healing-
So often that I just lost count...
I can’t understand all the doubts you are feeling,
Nor why you are “turning me out”.

“Are you a real cowboy”? is how it all started-
But that was a long time ago.
They all tried to warn you, that I was hard-hearted...
A slave to the Pro Rodeo.

We’ve farmed out the kids to our in-laws and outlaws...
Till they hardly know who we are.
But still I must tell you that I really love you,
I fear that won’t get me too far.

Well, I’ve raked my brain, for a reason for staying-
And so far I haven’t found one.
So mention my name, of a night, when you’re praying,
And, Sugar, it’s really been fun!

Sometimes life can do a number on relationships. Very well expressed, John.
