Death Ships - Thelma Lou

from This Is Indie Rock, Vol. 2 by Various Artists



met a girl named thelma lou. far out west where the skies are blue. she has watering eyes like the morning dew. fell in love one summer night. made sweet love by the railroad site. by some passing trains. i put my sweaty hand by her side. she promised me that she'd come along for the ride. in which i was grateful. thelma lou took off one night. gave no word no trail in sight. but birds were calling from the ocean side. she talked about the sailing seas. longing for that ocean breeze. in which I longed for too. just before she left that night. i was certain she would be my wife. in which I was grateful. been so long since I've seen her face. left me lonesome and out of place. ocean melodies bring me the blues. i've been trailing the trail of tears since thelma lou has disappeared. never to return. suddenly a light flashed across my eyes. thelma lou was watching for the skies. in which I was grateful. thelma lou and the ocean blue made all her dreams come true
