Story

I wrote this song in New Orleans after seeing a panhandler wearing shoes 2 sizes too big. This is my rendition of the story of his interaction with a smartly dressed woman walking down Royal Street.

Miss Lucy

Chorus:

Miss Lucy I'm a losing my shoe

Miss Lucy I'm a losing my shoe

I can't keep up with you

Miss Lucy I'm a losing my shoe

 

Miss Lucy my life is a mess

I'm a man in deep distress

My boss says I work too slow

That new guy's behind it I know

He's trying to make me look bad

Miss Lucy, it's driving me mad

Don't know what I'm gonna do?

Miss Lucy I'm a losing my shoe

 

(Chorus)

 

My sister, she's coming to town

With that new boyfriend that she found

I guess he's off his parole

For that identity that he stole

He wants to stay at my place

It's making me a mental case

His face is all tattooed

Miss Lucy, I'm a losing my shoe

 

(Chorus)

 

My neighbor he just bought a dog

A pit bull as big as a hog

He chewed a hole in my fence

The mess he makes is raising a stench

He woke me up this morning at four

He'd chewed through my back door

Did you see my house on the news?

Miss Lucy I'm a losing my shoe

 

(Chorus)

 

Miss Lucy, I bought this guitar

From a guy down at Gino's bar

Miss Lucy, it cost me a lot

Now I just found out that it 's hot

Miss Lucy, It's all such a shame

I got nothin' left to my name

Can I borrow a few bucks from you?

Wait! Miss Lucy, I'm a losing my shoe

 

(Chorus ending with Miss Lucy I'm a Losin' (X2), Miss Lucy I'm a losing my shoe)

 

My shoelace is broken in two

Miss Lucy I'm a losin' I'm a losin' I'm losin'

Miss Lucy I'm a losing my shoe
