lyrics

Turn Me Loose

I rode up this damn highway
With a man from Bunker Hill
The law says he’s my husband
But he just pays my bills

I’m too much for one man
And these north woods never stop
So goodbye to his loving
And hello to the top

Turn me loose on these boys
Who hammer in the mill
‘Cause lovin’s what I’m selling
They’re sure to get their fill
Set me free in the country
Where men are bored and strong
I’ll catch ‘em with my sundress
I’ll take ‘em for a song

I met him in the city
In the summer of my life
I trusted like a child
His eyes were two dice

But winter was cold
And the wind would never end
He started drinking whiskey
I started drinking gin

Turn me loose on these boys
Who hammer in the mill
‘Cause lovin’s what I’m selling
They’re sure to get their fill
Set me free in the country
Where men are bored and strong
I’ll catch ‘em with my sundress
I’ll take ‘em for a song
