June Carter Cash - The Heel

The Heel

The man who has me for his own
Is on the town and I'm alone
In his new suit and his blue tie
He slammed that door without goodbye
Tonight my eyes are jealous green
Tonight I'm feeling mighty mean
He meets in secret rendezvous
Some gal to tell his troubles to
That dirty low down heel
He'll promise her most anything
A sable coat a diamond ring
And she'll find out when it's too late
And all she'll get will be the gate
But while the dawn's a distant thing
In his embrace her heart will sing
Her dizzy head will spin with lies
And all too soon a woman cries
That dirty low down heel
The neon lights that flash below
Ignite my room with devil glow
And in the gloom I hear a laugh
That's coming from his photography
Ring my hands and walk the floor
And swear to even up the score
For where a kitten cries tonight
A panther waits to claw and bite
That dirty low down heel
I dare not play my radio
One more complaint and out I go
I'm sick of playing solitaire
The ace of spades is everywhere
There'll be no sleep for me tonight
The sheep I count are never white
They all turn out to be jet black
And whose the leader of the pack
The heel
At dawn I know he'll stagger in
Demanding coffee black as sin
And as I pour it from the tin
Ill slip a little powder in
He'll ring his hands and start to cry
And cross his heart and hope to die
And mumble I know how you feel
But I've been on a business deal
The heel
But as the pot begins
To perk I know my plan
Will never work
And as he starts to drink it up
I'll take his hand and break the cup
It's only jealousy I know
That's brought my thinking down so low
Why must I just sit here and grieve
Why don't I just pack up and leave
That dirty low down heel
But now hes really on
The stairs I try to act like I don't care
For in my hearts arithmetic
I find it takes two heels to click
We're in our world of love and hate
Where it will end is up to fate
And I'll let him have his little fling
And be the chewing gum that clings
To that dirty low down heel
That low down lovable heel
