Barroom Girls Lyrics - Gillian Welch

Review The Song (1)

Oh the night came undone like a party dress
And fell at her feet in a beautiful mess
The smoke and the whiskey came home in her curls
And they crept through the dreams of the barroom girls
Well she tosses and turns because the sun is unkind
And the heat of the day is coming in through the blinds
But eave all the blue skies for the rest of the world
Because the neon will shine for the barroom girls
Oh the barroom girls go by your side
Like the ponies who pass on a carousel ride
And all of the colors go 'round in a swirl
When you dance in the arms of the barroom girls
Now she rolls to her feet when she can't sleep no more
And looks at her clothes lying out on the floor
Last night's spangles and yesterday's pearls
Are the bright morning stars of the barroom girls

The Life | Reviewer: Jedda Tesla | 2/4/13

This song accurately describes the life of the lost young women who have left home for many reasons; I'd say the majority were abused by a family member,family friend and/or the parents were on drugs or alcoholics and didn't notice/care for their child/children. These sad girls self medicate w/alcohol; which leads to drugs, prostitution; being abused by all the men in their lives. These are the girls when in HS were ''easy'';they knew nothing else, didn't know they had a choice, didn't know to vocalize the word no. I was one of those girls. Was married; felt like a piece of rubbish, loved my husband, still was unfaithful, horrible,horrible, the memories, my actions haunt me 40 yrs later. Ask for help please should U B the victim of sexual, verbal, mental abuse! U R A Valuable Person, U R Most Important!
