Good as she can be!
I ran into John a few months ago at a Jessie Winchester concert and thanked him for “Good as she can be”. As a young girl I fought the battles of being a young girl in a small town and by the grace was rescued by college and did not end up as some of the others. These two verses stuck in my head only because I saw it happen and if your not careful it can happen to you.
“Well she was a millionaire Before she was fourteen But there was an emptineess there That to practically ereryone else could be seen
She hit up on the drug of love though there was no hole in her arm there was a hole some place else About as big as daaddy ten acre farm.
Well she had a baby at eighteen never finished high Her husband beat her for money and sex Till that cadillac finall ran out of fuel. One disaster led to another Down to her and her baby son. Born with a sivle spoon in her mouth headed south now, cause she was never born to run Oh, she was dying for it, For all the world to see Ah, she was as good as she could be.
