about

Just Frank and a very old parlor guitar, recorded in the staircase of an old hospital building.

lyrics

I used to have balls of steel
There was nothing in this world that could make me cower down
I always jumped the ledge
I lived on the edge
I was the baddest ass in town

But steel turns soft at a thousand degrees
You heated me up to my boiling point
You were a slot machine and I threw in every coin

Now I'm a timid, little weeping willow
And I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees

Oh, I'm a timid, little weeping willow
And I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees

I used to look down on men
Who would run from every gun and let their lovers take the wheel
I never tried to see
What I would be
Without my big ass balls of steel

But steel turns soft at a thousand degrees
You heated me up to my boiling point
You were a slot machine and I threw in every coin

Now I'm a timid, little weeping willow
And I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees

Steel turns soft at a thousand degrees
Your name's not Layla but you got my on my knees
I wish I'd never taught you about the birds and the bees
I'm a dog scratching itches from a hundred million fleas

I'm a timid, little weeping willow
And I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees

Oh, I'm a timid, little weeping willow
And I hope nobody sees
I hope nobody sees
My shriveled balls of steel
