Now She's Gone  - Steve Earle

    She was her daddy's little darlin'
    Her mama's only child
    They didn't understand at all when
    She took to running wild

    She left town one day and never said goodbye
    Left a hole in daddy's lap and a tear in mama's eye
    Where'd we go wrong and now she's gone
    She met a boy up in Kentucky
    Charlie was his name
    Just when he thought he got lucky
    She stole his watch and chain

    She always kept on movin' and she never wasted time
    And they said she left quite a string of broken hearts behind
    Woke up alone and now she's gone

    Me, I wasn't even trying
    You could say I was content
    She went through my life like lightning
    Blew out the other end

    I still taste her kisses, smell her perfume in the wind
    And if I could you know that I would do it all again
    She done me wrong, and now she's gone
