Pochette de l'album Hot Licks.

Paroles

Born in the Kansas’ whispering grass
Brought up an orphan, she was brought up fast
Seventeen years old, she’s married two men
Heart-breaking trucker keeps her on a short chain

Sweet orphan lady, she fell from heaven when she was seven
Sweet orphan lady brings me down, really brings me down

Somebody has stolen the flowers from her heart
[I filled up ?] my lady [with as he ?] torn her sweet soul apart

Sweet orphan lady, she fell from heaven when she was seven
Sweet orphan lady brings me down, really brings me down

Trucker she said he [???]
Said he was poisoned, found him dead [???]
[I played all night long these ?] F.B.I. files
Wanted for murder, but then who killed this child?

Sweet orphan lady, she fell from heaven when she was seven
Sweet orphan lady brings me down, really brings me down
