Down on Bankhead Highway in a one room country shack
you could hear his piano ringing like a custom cadillac - like a cadillac

beast boogied to the ceiling - beast boogied thru the floor
i loved to hear beast boogie - but beast don't boogie here no more

piano by his bedside, cigarette burns in the wood
he’d let me keep the change I found in the the little house that could
little house that could CH

lord my mama loved him - made her cry and made her laugh
he was the Sonny to her Cher, the petrol to her match - petrol to her match

Beast tore up the fly wheel riding mama’s clutch
5 times she said it’s over - 5 times was not enough

He loved me like a daughter - knew the words to all my songs
sometimes you don't know what you got til what you got is gone
now the beast is gone
