lyrics

“Band-aid for a bullet wound
where she shot me down
she's got a ring around her finger
she wears it like a crown
a pretty little sister the talk of this whole town
her name only comes up when I got sorrows to drown”
she wore those summer dresses
the kind they sell in May
she worked in a watch shop
but wouldn't give me the time of day
now she's cheatin' on her husband
n' he's cheatin' on her too
everybody's getting some but me and you
singin' “Band-aid for a bullet wound
where she shot me down
she's got a ring around her finger
she wears it like a crown
pretty little sister the talk of this whole town
her name only comes up when I got sorrows to drown”

yeah, well I would of, should of, could of
yeah it would of been nice
if things had turned out better
I would of made her my second wife
she ensnared me with her smile
n' put a bullet through my chest
now I’m staggering drunk bleeding
still totally obsessed
singin' “Band-aid for a bullet wound
where she shot me down
she's got this ring around her finger
she wears it like a crown
a pretty little sister the talk of this whole town
her name only comes up when I got sorrows to drown”
if love is a boat
then I have no oars
she would be the coast line
but I can't see any shore
tossed on this sea of heartache
and this ship is sinking fast
everyone knows a love-boat wasn't built to last

“Band-aid for a bullet wound
where she shot me down
she's got this ring around her finger
she wears it like a crown
a pretty little sister the talk of this whole town
her name only comes up when I got sorrows to drown”
bartender bartender
bring me another round
I’m in no shape for driving
my keys are no wear to be found
I lost them with my watch
my moral compass, my first wife
I was out picking gin blossoms
when they say she took her life
singin' “Band-aid for a bullet wound
where she shot me down
she's got this ring around her finger
she wears it like a crown
pretty little sister the talk of this whole town
her name only comes up when I got sorrows to drown”
I got sorrows
to drown
