Ryan Adams – Factory Girl lyrics

So, factory girl listened for the sound of her daddy's engine
Till the workbell sounds and she leaves town
Oh the summer's here are hot
All she seems to do is work and sleep
Wish that she were still with you
Now you don't know where she is
Lying in her mother's bed
Or, who she's sleeping with...

All the kids would laugh at her
Cause she seemed so sweet and pure
I took this shift because of her

Though I've never said a word
I once smiled and looked at her
'til the shift boss said, "get back to work."

Now you don't know where she is
Or whose bed she's sleeping in
What man she's sleeping with.
