A gentle chide at Country-Western songs. (Humor ... or not)
The UPS Blues


I woke up this morning to a brown sunrise.
A delivery of sorrow had come to my eyes.
I can't believe that our love you'd forsake.
If this is a dream then I'm ready to wake.

(Chorus}
I've got all my things packed and ready to go.
It's time that I left and made a clean break.
I'll leave the good memories. I want you to know
that I'm only taking a box of heartache.


I have always loved you since first we met.
It's so hard to believe that you could forget.
It seems that your heart is defective, I guess.
You delivered your love to another's address.

I hear your pleas coming from down the hall.
"Forgive and forget" - as though nothing at all
had happened to us but what can I say?
I've discovered what brown can do for me today.

(Chorus}
I've got all my things packed and ready to go.
It's time that I left and made a clean break.
I'll leave the good memories. I want you to know
that I'm only taking a box of heartache.


You say you have changed; you'll now be true
but, just like a package with postage due,
the cost would be more than I could afford.
If you want forgiveness then talk to the Lord.

I've tried to forgive you, the best that I can
but all trust is gone now that brown's hit the fan.
Tomorrow I'll start making new memories.
I'm no longer accepting your deliveries.

(Chorus}
I've got all my things packed and ready to go.
It's time that I left and made a clean break.
I'll leave the good memories. I want you to know
that I'm only taking a box of heartache.


It's time that I left and made a clean break.
I'm walking out with a box of heartache.
In time I will heal and I will be free.
I'll send back these heartaches to you C.O.D.

(Fade)
In time I will heal and I will be free.

I'll send back these heartaches to you C.O.D.
I'll send back these heartaches to you C.O.D.
