The Other Shoe

by Old 97s © 1997 Old 97s

Key:

One old brown shoe
Falls in slow motion
And the bed springs hover
Right above your head

As bed springs do
When you're beneath them
And someone else just 
Climbed into your bed

By the time she thought
You'd probably got to Phenix
She'd arranged for
Your shoes to be filled

You've got your pride
And a blue-steel 45
And you're waiting for
The other shoe to fall

You dig a double grave
out in the meadow
Curse the rain
that turns the dirt to mud

Take 35
South towards Laredo
Try to find a doctor
That'll prescribe an elixir
That'll make everything better
Except your late wife and her lover

By the time she thought
You'd probably got to Phoenix
She'd sealed her fate
And gotten herself killed

You've got your pride
And a blue-steel 45
And you're waiting for
The other shoe to fall
