Kenny Rogers - Lucille Lyrics




In a bar in Toledo
Across from the depot
On a bar stool she took off her ring
I thought I'd get closer
So I walked on over
I sat down and asked her name
When the drinks finally hit her
She said I'm no quitter
But I finally quit livin' on dreams
I'm hungry for laughter
And here ever after
I'm after whatever the other life brings

In the mirror I saw him
And I closely watched him
I thought how he looked out of place
He came to the woman
Who sat there beside me
He had a strange look on his face
The big hands were calloused
He looked like a mountain
For a minute I thought I was dead
But he started shakin'
His big heart was breakin'
He turned to the woman and said

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
With four hungry children
And a crop in the field
I've had some bad times
Lived through some sad times
But this time your hurtin' won't heal
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille

After he left us
I ordered more whisky
I thought how she'd made him look small
From the lights of the bar room
To a rented hotel room
We walked without talkin' at all
She was a beauty
But when she came to me
She must have thought I'd lost my mind
I could'nt hold her
'Cos the words that he told her
Kept coming back time after time

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
With four hungry children
And a crop in the field
I've had some bad times
Lived through some sad times
But this time your hurtin' won't heal
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille

    Who else is listening to this in 2019 while eating a plate of ribs with mac and cheese and coleslaw on the side and washing it all down with a pinata colada?

    Shamone Walker

    Well, I’m watching Nov 2019, ate a Pop Tart about an hour ago with a cigarette for dessert, still hungry & no crops to speak of, unless u count condiments. Washing mine down with a load of laundry, reds actually, tho I doubt it’s as good as a merlot. (Is it obvious I’m here on a Saturday nite bored, lonely & compounding my melancholy with sad love songs from my childhood just to see how low I can go?😒)
    Send me some soul food cause ribs & Mac & cheese would totally fix all my emotions. 😋 U can keep the coleslaw tho, never really understood it.✌🏽

    Enrique Corrales

    @Shamone Walker

    Good lord that tore all my insides up. Sadly I am also in on a Saturday night. I am from the future though. It is currently Saturday November 23 but the year is 2065. Things aren't really different in the future. I am currently watching boy meets world on Disney plus. I should be out and about having fun but I don't really know people so here I am. If I could I would send you a plate. Sad to hear about the slaw though because it is amazing

    Shamone Walker

    Enrique Corrales It’s ok, I tend to exaggerate. I don’t drink merlot, it is horrible! 😣
    So are you an alien? android? reptilian? Or just ur average time traveler?
    Disney is evil & wicked. Tell me it doesn’t exist 65 years from now. I’ll be dead but can go with 1 less worry perhaps.

    Enrique Corrales

    @Shamone Walker

    I am just your average time traveler. I don't blame you. I've never been a wine person myself. Give me a bottle of whiskey and I am a happy camper. Sorry to tell you but it does still exist in the future. On the bright side. The Gambler has become the United states new national anthem
