"Blue Banisters"

[Verse 1]

There's a picture on the wall

Of me on a John Deere

Jenny handed me a beer

Said "How the hell did you get there?"

Oh, Oklahoma

Mhm-hm, hm


[Verse 2]

There were flowers that were dry

Sittin' on the dresser

She asked me where they from

I said "A place I don't remember"

Oh, Oklahoma

Oh, mhm



Jenny jumped into the pool

She was swimmin' with Nikki Lane

She said, "Most men don't want a woman

With a legacy, it's of age"

She said "You can't be a muse and be happy, too

You can't blacken the pages with Russian poetry

And be happy"

And that scared me

'Cause I met a man who



Said he'd come back every May

Just to help me if I'd paint my banisters blue

Blue banisters, oh

Said he'd fix my weathervane

Give me children, take away my pain

And paint my banisters blue

My banisters blue


[Verse 3]

There's a hole that's in my heart

All my women try and heal

They're doin' a good job

Convincin' me that it's not real

It's heat lightnin', oh-oh-uh, uh


[Verse 4]

'Cause there's a man that's in my past

There's a man that's still right here

He's real enough to touch

In my darkest nights

He's shining




Jenny was smokin' by the pool

We were writin' with Nikki Lane

I said I'm scared of the Santa Clarita Fires

I wish that it would rain

I said the power of us three

Can bring absolutely anything

Except that one thing

The diamonds, the rust and the rain

The thing that washes away the pain

But that's okay, 'cause



Now when weather turns to May

All my sisters come to paint

My banisters green

My blue banisters grey

Tex and Mex are in the Bay

Chucky's makin' birthday cake

Jake is runnin' barefeet, there's a baby on the way

And now my blue banisters are green and grey




Summer comes, Winter goes

Spring I skip, God knows

Summer comes, Winter goes

Spring I sleep, Heaven knows

Every time it turns to May

All my sisters fly to me

To paint, paint
