about

Title track of the Infinite Mercies 2014 album....the singer recalls, in three verses, epic and dramatic breakups with his lover....this time, however, she..."took nothing, nor said an ill word....she just slipped out the window with the Texas state bird".

lyrics

Back in St. Louis...the first time was rough
But Lord all she knew was enough is enough
Kickin' my suitcase and throwin' my shoes
Waking the neighbors and spreadin' the news
Texas state bird...Texas state bird
Virginia was precious...but haven't you heard
This time she took nothing...nor said an ill word
She just slipped out the window with the Texas state bird
Skipped out the window with the Texas state bird
Now fight number two was in the Hollywood hills
Ran outta patience and ran outta pills
Left in my towncar at Burbank and Vine
With a head full of whiskey and a shirt full of wine
Texas state bird...Texas state bird
Virginia was precious...but haven't you heard
This time she took nothing...nor said an ill word
She just slipped out the window with the Texas state bird
Now fight number three was in Memphis at night
The tour was a mess Lord and the bus was a sight
Ran outta patience and ran outta gas
Shook up and shell shocked in shatterproof glass
Texas state bird...Texas state bird
Virginia was precious...but haven't you heard
This time she took nothing...nor said an ill word
She just slipped out the window with the Texas state bird
