Words & Music by Chet Vincent

lyrics

Bottles and bookshelves hide all the letters that I write
mostly late at night --
They're all for Lona Lee.

She tore the dress from her marionette, all those gold buttons painted red
now lost in our bed --
They're all for Lona Lee.

So doctor gives her pills but she puts 'em with her jewelry in a trunk
down below her bunk --
They're all for Lona Lee.

No cigarettes on the bus, driver says to hold my breath for a while
and try to count every mile --
They're all for Lona Lee.

I left so much behind: winter coats, and gloves, even once my shoe
well what else could I do?
I live for Lona Lee.
