lyrics

Eloise, she rides in the early dawn
Through a cold Kentucky wood.
All alone without the radio on
As the rain pounds on the hood.

She’d let go of the rearview baggage and
She no longer kept the score
For the trailer shack, fifty miles back
Where I lay on the floor.

Oh my heart, My poor heart is breaking in my coat,
Oh Eloise, you did your part,
And left before I woke to find you,
Left me with this heart…. My ugly heart.

Then think on the days when I loved her so,
Not the nights when I was gone.
My cheating ways had made her go,
Never thought it’d be my song.

Oh my heart, My poor heart is breaking in my coat,
Oh Eloise, you did your part,
And left before I woke to find you,
Left me with this heart…. My ugly heart.

Eloise, I’m sorry for all I done
I know my deeds will soon be judged
I had my fun, more than once,
And now the song is hushed.

Oh my heart, My poor heart is breaking in my coat,
Oh Eloise, you did your part,
And left before I woke to find you,
Left before the sun could shine, you
Left me with this messed up mind, you
Left me with this heart…. My ugly heart.

Without affectation or irony, Cameron’s lyrical songs mark the juncture where Yacht Rock meets Folk Rock.
