Lyrics

He's starin' down the barrel of her gun
wonderin how he ended up here
they were just havin fun
red neon from the motel sign
on dirty walls through dingy blinds
down on his knees she towers high above

Oh look in her eyes
She's nothin like the girls back home 
who can't be compromised
oh the sun will rise
another day the world turns round 
another day goes by

Not two hours ago he was walkin slow
he saw her in the streetlight glow
she had a half-black eye but he didn't mind
cuz her legs were strong and her back was straight
her skirt was tight and he couldn't wait
flecks of turquoise glitter sparked her eyes

Oh look in her eyes
She's nothin like the girls back home 
who can't be compromised
oh the sun will rise
another day the world turns round 
another day goes by

How was he to know he picked the one
she was at the end, her rope undone
workin three jobs so her kids could eat
so he took her back and he pushed her down
when he picked his pants up off the ground
he only had a twenty so he tried to cheat

Oh, look what you did
you made a deal, you gave your word, but it was counterfeit
oh oh oh man, this is it
you thievin cheating SOB you messed with the wrong bitch
oh oh oh the sun will rise
another day the world turns round 
another day goes by

Oh, the sun will still rise.
