Cedar Key

by Brett Matthew West

Cedar Key

Mary McGregor was the high school queen
Life of the party, cause of a scene
Wearing her dresses way too tight
Mary McGregor gave birth one night

Robby Thompson was the quarterback
As a father he did lack
Left Mary out there on her own
To raise her son, provide him a home

What are you doing in this place
I see the tender years upon your face
Pouring whiskey here for me
Making a living in Cedar Key

A single mother is never good
Mary gave her baby all that she could
Too many times she went without
Learning hard lessons in what life is about

One night it was pouring rain
Mary was running late again
The manager stormed across the floor
Snatched her apron. Showed her the door

What are you doing in this place
I see the tender years upon your face
Pouring whiskey here for me
Making a living in Cedar Key

His act was more than I could stand
Loud music played by the band
I grabbed him around the neck
Left the bar a total wreck

Now Mary and I are on the run
I'm proud that Danny is my son
We will overcome what may
Sharing love with each new day

What are you doing in this place
I see the tender years upon your face
Pouring whiskey here for me
Making a living in Cedar Key

What are you doing in this place
I see the tender years upon your face
Pouring whiskey here for me
Making a living in Cedar Key

Making a living in Cedar Key
