Lyrics & Tabs

Adelaide
« back
He fell in love with a reservation girl
During the time of the sugar beet harvest
They moved out west to the coast where he built her a bed
Made of shagbark from Sherwood Forest

And life was good until she told him goodbye
Said they was better of livin' separate lives
And maybe they was

Well should we stop and take her with us
Should we stop and take her with us
Should we stop and take her with us
For all our time

We left Worcester with our boots and our bags
And America undressed herself in front of our eyes
My sister told me
My sister told me

That there's gangs in the hills
When the hickory falls
And you never know when you're gonna run from it all
Like she did

Should we stop and take her with us
Should we stop and take her with us
Should we stop and take her with us
For all our time
    Chorus:
    Adelaide you know you're just no good for me
    You know it's just so hard to see that you were right
    Adelaide you know you're just no good for me
    You know it's just so hard to see that you were right
    You were right

She was danglin' her legs over the little Colorado River
Catchin' the last bit of sunlight in all of Arizona
Told me
Arizona told me
So i asked her if she wanted to fly
If maybe she needed a ride
Anywhere at all

And should we stop and take her with us
Should we stop and take her with us
Should we stop and take her with us
For all our time
    Chorus:
    Adelaide you know you're just no good for me
    You know it's just so hard to see that you were right
    Adelaide you know you're just no good for me
    You know it's just so hard to see that you were right
    You were right

Oh Will, I wish that you could love me less
Oh Will, I wish that you could love me less
I tried he said underneath his breath
I've tried

Oh Will, I wish that you could love me less
Oh Will, I wish that you could love me less
I tried he said underneath his breath
I've tried
    Chorus:
    Adelaide you know you're just no good for me
    You know it's just so hard to see that you were right
    Adelaide you know you're just no good for me
    You know it's just so hard to see that you were right
    You were right
