Song : “Between Here an Gone”

Pearl Robison reviews her options sitting in her car in the parking lot ofthe dollar store she manages in Macon, Georgia.

Between Here And Gone
WRITTEN BY: F.D. LEONE

No one dreams of bein’ manager at Thrifty Town
But life happens and there’s worse around
A stick of spearmint ‘ll hide the whiskey on her breath
Might as well open up she’s out of cigarettes

Snowed eight inches overnight the air is crystal clear
They’ll be buying extra bread and eggs and beer
Just sittin’ and thinkin’ in her car out there alone
She’s stranded between here and gone

She could just drive away free as the breeze
Start over somewhere, just leave
Don’t matter no more what’s right or wrong
She’s stranded between here and gone

Checking her makeup she sees a new grey hair
She don’ know that woman who returns her stare
The day’s first shopper pulls in the parking lot
She still has time for one more shot

There’s less and less for her here each day
She used to find little things to keep the blues away
Like goin’ to the Blue Bonnet for a lemon custard cone
She’s stranded between here and gone

She could just drive away free as the breeze …
