With the money from her accident
So at least she could get some enjoyment
No one could say that she was left up on the shelf

Levi Stubbs' tears run down his face
She ran away from home on her mother's best coat
And her husband was one of those blokes
The sort a war takes away

Are here to make everything right that's wrong
Are here to make it all okay with you
One dark night he came home from the sea
It hurt her more to see him walking out the door

She takes off the Four Tops tape and puts it back in its case
Levi Stubbs' tears
