Painted girls and wine by Faron Young


(Jack Ripley)
Oh it's funny how wine makes fools
Out of men around women
And it's funny how women love men
Till their money is gone.
As I went down to Juarez town
To buy my love a ring
I stopped me by the tavern
Where the painted woman sing.
Says I, I'll take one look inside
But I'll not touch that wine
And in the morn I'll buy the ring
And Mary will be mine.
Oh, it's funny how wine makes fools
Out of men around women
And it's funny how women love men
While the wine flows on.
It's funny how wine makes fools
Out of men around women
And it's funny how women love men
Till their money is gone.
I walked me in and sat me down
Beside the candle light
And a painted girl walked by and said
Are you alone tonight.
I showed her all the money
That would buy my Mary's ring
And soon the wine began to flow
And we began to sing.
Now I walk the streets of Juarez town
With Mary on my mind
But every window I look me in
There's painted girls and wine.
I can't go on to Mary 'cause
I don't have the right
So I'll stay here in Juarez town
No matter what it brings.
Oh it's funny how wine makes fools
Out of men around women
And it's funny how women love men
Till their money is gone...
