lyrics

Lilly Hurst     -Jeff Wickland / Dave Coleman


He took up with her
At the Lincoln Hotel
A place to rest his head
When nightfall fell

Nix was a brakeman
Working this railroad town
Lilly Hurst had a red light shining
When the sun went down

She was one of a kind
Not one to fool around
Lilly Hurst had a way
In this one track town

A new moon shines the darkest
Down on a twisted path to tread
A busted light just swinging
Lilly Hurst wearing red

Nix came back one night
Needin’ his comfort and rest
He walked in on Lilly Hurst
Doing what she did best

Which man she was with
I guess I never did hear
Nix  he drew a line
Left Lilly bleeding ear to ear 

A new moon shines the darkest
Down on a twisted path to tread
A busted light swinging
Lilly Hurst wearing red
