Trent Tomlinson – A Man Without A Woman (Live)

De eerste keer dat ik een song hoorde van Trent Tomlinson was Henry Cartwright’s Prayer And Produce Stand. Trent heeft nu een nieuwe single getiteld Man Without A Woman. Er is helaas nog geen videoclip.

Songtekst:

Twenty-five just yesterday
partied too hard, slept too late
poured water on the frosted flakes
cause the red cap milk’s gone sour
with a pounding head he works all day long
when he gets off, he don’t go home
puts on a little glove box cologne
and heads off to happy hour

And that’s a man without a woman
lonely and lost, no use at all
a boat without an ocean
talk about somethin that ain’t much good for nothin
and that’s a man without a woman

Wakes up and he’s 36
got a house, two cars and kids
and the wife left town cause her mama’s sick
and she’s left him in charge
now it’s junk food lunch in a Walmart sack
they’re late for school and their clothes don’t match
the beds ain’t made and the kitchen’s trashed
and there’s toys out in the yard

And that’s a man without a woman
lonely and lost, no use at all
a boat without an ocean
talk about somethin that ain’t much good for nothin
and that’s a man without a woman

Now he’s 81 just sitting there
next to an empty rocking chair
and it’s been a year he’s been alone
wonderin what the good Lord’s waiting on

And that’s a man without a woman
lonely and lost, no use at all
a boat without an ocean
talk about somethin that ain’t much good for nothin
and that’s a man without a woman
