Butane Lighter Blues

This song is by Greg Brown and appears on the live album One Night (1983).

She had a butane lighter, but it wasn't really working that good
She had a butane lighter, but it wasn't really working too good
She said, you coulda used a match
I said, yes I could

Cedar Valley Shopper's Haven, that's what it said on the side
Cedar Valley Shopper's Haven, that's what it said on the side
I was out buying a monkey wrench
She was just wasting time

You want to grab a bite to eat, I asked her with a grin
You want to grab a bite to eat, I asked her with a grin
I opened the door to my '64 Chrysler
And she slipped right in

She had those nervous eyes, said she was just passing through the town
She had those nervous eyes, she was just passing through the town
I guess that she was hungry
The way she wolfed her Big Boy down

Could you take me out to 80, she asked me soft and slow
Honey, could you take me out to 80, she asked me sweet and low
She said, I got a girlfriend gonna meet me
Somewhere out around San Bernadino

Thanks alot, take care now, you can just let me out here
Thanks alot, take care now, youi can just let me out here
I had to watch her fade
In my rear view mirror

She forgot her butane lighter, I flicked the damn thing a time or two
She forgot her butane lighter, I flicked the damn thing a time or two
No use, no juice, I threw it out the window
Tell me what are you gonna do?
