Sunburst Beauty

Two long months in a uniform
Little minds push me to conform
And the ground screamed out from beneath my feet
And all my dreams never seemed so sweet

Then the first day out, I take my leave
And put my Sunburst Beauty down upon my knee
And I sang a country song with nothing to lose
It was my body and The Folsom Prison Blues
It was a country song with nothing to lose
It was my version of The Folsom Prison Blues

The two of you looked so proud
Faces shining and you smiled out loud
The ground screamed out from beneath your feet
And all your dreams never seemed this sweet

And the band played on, I marched right by
Looking straight ahead with my chin held high
And I sang a country song with nothing to lose
It was my body and The Folsom Prison Blues
