      About "Ships"

      Lyrics for Patty Loveless - "Ships"

      Eddie had a few days comin'
      So he took a Las Vegas jaunt
      Out to the land of supply and demand
      Where you can get anything you want
      He wasn't lookin' for true love
      No, he didn't believe in that stuff
      Eddie LeGrande was a hard workin' man
      Who just needed a little good luck

      His shoes were a little worn
      His hair was a little thin
      Just another old sailor
      Waitin' on his ship to come in

      Lily was a two time loser
      Who said that love was just a roll of the dice
      She acted real tough, said once ain't enough
      For me I learned my lesson twice
      But deep in her heart lived a young girl
      Dreamin' a young girl's dream
      And that young girl was who Eddie ran into
      Over by the slot machines

      Her face was a little pale
      Her dress was a little thin
      Oh but lookin' at her was like
      Watchin' his ship come in

      Well, he bought her a cup of coffee
      With the quarters he meant to play
      They went for a bite and they talked all night
      'Til they said what they needed to say
      Then they found 'em an all night chapel
      With a heart shaped honeymoon suite
      And somewhere tonight in the neon light
      Two hearts can't be beat

      And he's singin' a little song
      She's grinnin' a little grin
      And they're holdin' each other
      Watchin' their ship come in

      Her face was a little pale
      His hair was a little thin
      But they're two young lovers
      Watchin' their ship come in
      Just holdin' each other
      Watchin' their ship come in
