Pasture

 

I’m a poor white Bastard,

‘aint no big shot deal.

But I don’t like my own woman

a-causing me to kneel.

Kneel to your exalted ass?

Here’s what I’m gonna do.

Gonna put you to out to Pasture.

Baby, we’re so through!

 

In our shared apartment,

sittin’ at the desk.

I’m-a doling out our finances,

and trying my very best.

You would give me withered looks,

while I signed every check.

Gonna put you out to Pasture.

Beats wringing out your neck!

 

Put you out to Pasture

Put you out to pasture

Put you out to Pasture

Here and now.

Put you out to Pasture

Throw you in the Pasture

Prolly never loved me anyhow.

 

Once we wuz best of friends,

but those wuz better times.

Now you’ve become an albatross,

weighing on my mind.

You’ve become a Shithead,

nothing but a pain.

Gonna put you out to Pasture.

And save my fucking brain.

Put you out to Pasture

Put you out to pasture

Put you out to Pasture

Here and now.

Put you out to Pasture

Throw you in the Pasture

…probably be better off there, anyhow.

 

Well I’m-a getting longer in the tooth,

guess that is a fair cop.

But I ‘aint quitting this here guitar

Cause an Industry says “Stop”.

Ya’ can stop a hiring me,

But ya’ can’t wish me away.

I’ll be back to darken your office door,

some godforsaken day.

 

Put Me Out to Pasture,

Put Me Out to Pasture,

Put Me Out to Pasture,

Cause you can

Put Me Out to Pasture,

Throw me in the pasture

It doesn’t make me lesser of a man.

 

Put Us Out to Pasture,

Put Us Out to Pasture,

Put Us Out to Pasture,

If you must.

Put Us Out to Pasture,

Throw Us in the pasture

…but don’t think we’ll vanish into the dust.

don’t think we will vanish in the dust 3x
