State Radio Adelaide Lyrics

He fell in love with a reservation girl
During the time of the sugar beat harvest
They moved out west to the coast where he built her a bed
Made of shag bark from surewood forest
And things were good until she told him goodbye
Said they were better off living separete lives
Maybe they was

Should we stop and take her with us (x3)
For all our time

So we left Worcester with our boots and our bags
And America undressed herself in front of our eyes
My sister told me, my sister told me

Had these gangs in the hills when the hickery falls
And you never know when you're gonna need to run from it all
Like she did

But
Should we stop and take her with us (x3)
For all our time

Adelaide
You know you're just no good for me
You know it's just so hard to see
That you were right

Oh that you were right

She was dangling her legs over the little Colorado river
Asking the last bit of sunlight and all of Arizona told me
Arizona told me

So I asked her if she wanted to fly
Yup maybe she needed a ride
To go anywhere at all

Adelaide
You know you're just no good for me
You know it's just so hard to see
That you were right

Oh Willy, I wish that you could love me less
Oh Willy, I wish that you could love me less
I've tried, he said underneath his breath, I've tried!
Oh Willy, I wish that you could love me less
Oh Willy, I wish that you could love me less
I've tried, he said underneath his breath, I've tried!

Adelaide
You know you're just no good for me
You know it's just so hard to see
That you were right

Adelaide
You know you're just no good for me
You know it's just so hard to see
That you were right

Oh that you were right
