Lyrics

She was sweet 16 and all messed up
with two young boys in a pickup truck
singing out loud and swinging back
bottles of beer

she was lay down sally and played it rough
with two dead soldiers in a parking lot
watching for cops and
praying that no one would hear

Misty's living on the razor's edge
small town dreams running through her head
one foot in heaven and the other's dead
no one hears when Misty says
oh, Misty says
Momma, I'm doing ok
Momma, I'm feeling alright
Momma, I think that I might
not be coming home
tonight

she wore cut off shorts and a halter top
belly ring swingin' at the old truck stop
looking for a ride on the next train
out of dodge

she found a friend named John
who paid her well
to kiss him sweet but not to tell
and with a couple of smokes
he left her in an old garage

walked back home it was well past dark
to her beat up momma
in the trailer park
found Daddy swimmin' in the bottom of a
bottle of Jack

she said someday Lord
I'm gonna get me a Ford
buy a six pack from the local store
drive it straight to hell
and never, never look back

Misty's living on the razor's edge
small town dreams running through her head
one foot in heaven and the other's dead
no one hears when Misty says
oh, Misty says
Momma, I'm doing ok
Momma, I'm feeling alright
Momma, I think that I might
not be coming home
tonight
