Make-Up And Faded Blue Jeans

This song is by Merle Haggard and appears on the album Back To The Barrooms (1980).

In downtown Modesto I was workin' the Holiday Inn
I would sit with a gig that would last us throughout the weekend
I was singing a new song I'd wrote on the way into town
When she came in the front door and found her a place to sit down

Hey, I knew right away that she like the words to my song
'Cause she stared at my git-guitar and followed my fingers too long
And she had the likeness of a girl I'd seen in my dreams
But lights can do wonders with make-up and faded blue jeans

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my mind
So I found a hundred reasons for lookin' her way one more time
She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitar
And blow all my chances at bein' a big singing star

With one passin' glance I could tell she was young for her age
Yeah, she got to looking better as she got down on closer to the stage
And as she sipped on her wine I knew just the kind she would be
And somehow I knew she was here to do bad things to me

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my mind
So I found a hundred reasons for lookin' her way one more time
She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitar
And blow all my chances at, at bein' a big singing star

She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitar
And blow all my chances at, at bein' a big singing star
