left hook…

where ya from…

all over…lived everywhere…all over America…out East…down South…the Midwest…spent some time in California…just driftin’ from state to state…no particular place in mind…never spent much time in those places…would just go there and hang out for awhile…long ‘nough to get into trouble then leave town…

what kinda trouble…

usually with women…’bout like you…real pretty types…partial to redheads…be with ’em for a month or two…then somethin’ would happen…I’d get drunk one night and say the first thing that popped into my head and off we’d go to the races…small things…little things…like what do ya mean I shouldn’t go out for more beer…sayin’ some stupid thing like you smoke too much…they’d always take it as a personal insult…like I don’t have a right to my opinion or somethin’…

I see…

then they’d haul off and hit me…

all of ’em…

pretty much…I’d say the wrong thing and they’d hit me square in the jaw…all of ’em had this ability to connect with a left hook…ain’t that strange…ain’t that peculiar…you’d think every once and while they’d kick or hit me with a right…but it was always a left hook…never could figure that out…

didya hit ’em back…

nope…never struck a woman…not once…I’d just leave…get in the Ford and head on to some other town…drive all night till I found some place to sleep…look for a bit of work…hook up with another broad…be off to the races again…

haven’t found one yet to stay with…

naw…things just ain’t clicked for me in that way …maybe one day…maybe one day…

yeah…maybe so…

you like movies…old movies…westerns…

haven’t really thought ’bout it…like John Wayne I guess…

yeah he was somethin’ wasn’t he…I was always partial to Gary Cooper myself…or Clint Eastwood in them spaghetti westerns…

never seen one…

spaghetti westerns…they were made in Italy…that’s why they called ’em spaghetti westerns…

I’ll have to look into that…

Google it…

where you sleepin’ tonight…

out in the truck…under the stars…windows down…let the breeze blow through…real cool like…

you some kinda cowboy…

I don’t know…some kinda drifter…I’ll be gone tomorrow…

that’s too bad…

really…

yeah…wanted to try out my left hook…
