A Short Life Of Trouble

This song is by Dave Alvin and appears on the album Public Domain (2000).

A short life of trouble, little girl
A few more words, then part
A short life of trouble, little girl
For a boy with a broken heart

Remember that promise you made to me
Standing in the ballroom door
You promised me that you'd marry me
And you would roam no more

A short life of trouble, little girl
A few more words, then part
Short life of trouble, little girl
For a boy with a broken heart

I hear that train a-comin'
I hear that whistle blow
I'd rather be dead and in my grave
Than to see my darling go

A short life of trouble, little girl
A few more words, then part
Short life of trouble, little girl
For a boy with a broken heart

Sitting alone, talking with you
Gazing into your eyes
I'd give all this world and half of my life
If you were only my bride

A short life of trouble, little girl
A few more words, then part
A short life of trouble, little girl
For a boy with a broken heart
