Kris Kristofferson

Down to Her Socks

 

Slowly she sank to her knees on the floor

Cursing the freedom she'd won

Fromthe torture she'd vowed not to take anymore

And the victim she'd almost become

 

For a lady who'd learned all there is about leaving

She sure took a long time to go

But he loved her right down to her socks

And no further

And her feet were the last ones to know

 

Spoken:

         Sometimes when you take a good

         stiff shot to the heart

         It kinda stuns you

         So you stand there like some old fighter

         taking punishment

         You don't even know you're taking

         Then one day you look down at your feet

         And see those suckers are just walking

         You away from it

 

For a lady who'd learned all there is about living

She sure picked a hard way to go

 

But he loved her right down to her socks - and no further

And her feet were the last ones to know
