The Sharpest Crown

The Sharpest Crown

There was a girl in my hometown
They say she wore the sharpest crown
Beautiful as diamond tile
But they never took her picture
‘Cause she never learned to smile

And it’s not surprising
There’s nothing exciting
Late at night you’ll hear the sound
They say she wore the sharpest crown

She felt a darkness deep inside
She went and asked her momma why
She got no answer just because
Her momma was sleeping or pretending that she was

And it’s not surprising
There’s nothing exciting
I hope that she’ll turn around
They say she wore the sharpest crown

O I loved her don’t ask how
Must have had some reasons that I can’t remember now
Some folks say I let her down
But the same folks say she wore the sharpest
Dangerous, it tore the darkness
Held her like a ten ton harness
As I ran off for the farthest town

They say she wore the sharpest crown
