lyrics

You think I’ve been living easy
Chasing all the Dixie dreams.
But it’s hard to make that train run
When you don’t push any steam

Sometimes I catch an uptown gig
Where I play society tunes
For little Debby Debutante
Who likes to slum a little too

Though I can’t send her roses or much of anything
That she don’t already have waiting.
And I can hear her old man laughing, I can hear him sing,
“Son if you marry my belle, she’s gonna need a ring.”

She gestures like an angel
With her Daddy’s Parliaments
I’m thinking how ‘m I gonna wrap that pretty finger
And keep up with the rent.

Yeah but still she gives me wanton eyes.
And even if it’s just to shack
I ain’t nobody’s delivery boy
So I ain’t looking back.

Cause I can’t send her roses or much of anything
That she don’t already have waiting.
And I can hear her old man laughing, I can hear him sing,
“Son if you marry my belle, she’s gonna need a ring.”

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