High Fashion Queen Lyrics - Steve Earle

Review The Song (1)

There's a place everyone of us can go to
Maybe you have been there once or twice
Where all your friends just look at you and whisper
And they want to give you nothing but advice

When you walk in they all know what you're after
And the higher that you get the more they'll see
In a dark room filled with music, wine, and laughter
Your eyes keep searching for her constantly

Is it that one in the corner with her eyes filled with tears
Or is she the one who's having fun drinking too much beer
Every night it's the same sad old procedure
The doorman winks at you on your way out
'Cause deep inside he knows just what you're after
And he's got something you can't live without

There's nothing new that can be said about dirt
And there's nothing left inside your heart but the same old hurt
Of an old love's fancy life that left you stranded in a dream
Ain't you glad you're a high fashion queen
Ain't you glad you're a high fashion queen

Distilled Essence of Honkey Tonk | Reviewer: Ham | 4/27/2005

This song with it's biting, cryptic lyrics and straight-up honkey-tonk bass, guitar, and piano lines is both earily archtypal of a genre of seventies-era country while being entirely original and enduring. I first heard this on the Gram Parsons tribute, "Return of the Greivous Angel" and I was smitten from the first time I heard the first unrepentent twang of \Steve Earle's guitar. I still don't know what the hell it's about but I love this tune!
