Kathleen Edwards – Oil Man's War lyrics

Bobby wished he was from the past
He said those cars they used to drive were the best
I know that I'm a simple man
Even my dreams I deserve to have

Annabel had plans of her own
She said there's no way in hell I'm going home
Mamma says she always knows best
God love her, but her life is a mess

I won't change my mind
So keep your hand on my thigh tonight
When we get up north
We'll buy us a store
I won't fight in an oil man's war

Bobby bought a brand new suit
From his neighbour bought round toe shoes
Stuffed the money down in his socks
On his way he bought a wrist corsage

Annie was scared to death
She'd never once in her life laid with a man
But she knew it was his only chance
She bought a white dress second hand

I won't change my mind
Keep your hand on my thigh tonight
When we get up north
We'll buy us a store
I won't fight in an oil man's war

You can't say it's just a matter of pride
I've been living here since I was a child
And now I'm just a simple man
But even my dreams I deserve to have

I won't change my mind
Keep your hand on my thigh tonight
When we get up north
We'll buy us a store
Live upstairs after the kids are born

And I'm not gonna die
So keep your hand on my thigh tonight
'Cause when we get up north we'll buy us a store
I won't fight in an oil man's war
I won't fight in an oil man's war
