Lyrics:

The Ballad of June Bug Lee
Lauren Adams
MSBLOU MUSIC BMI -2009

She sits on the bench and watches the sun go down
When it gets real late, time to wander around
She had a life once that was pure and clean
Now it's all over for June Bug Lee

There's no one there to help her, no one gives a damn
For the chance to start over she'd give her right hand
Down at the courthouse, they just won't see
So, now it's all over for June Bug Lee.

One day we had it all, in one day it went away
They gave us a check so we bought that SUV
He took off as soon as things got bad
Dreams disappeared into the ether

She fights the bank, she fights the law, and she hunkers down
She don't wanna let them run her out of her own house
She never asked for help, she knows nothing is free
And now it's all over for June Bug Lee

She don't answer but it rings all day..
She tried everything to keep the wolves at bay
There's no one to rely on, with a mortgage to pay
She wants to disappear into the ether

With the little boy and girl she can't just walk away
She'd do any job, just for the pay
She remembers what they told her she could be
But now that's all over for Ms. June Bug Lee.
Now it's over Ms. June Bug Lee.

Packs up the car for a midnight ride
Let's loose the cat and shuts out the light
This is not the way she wanted it to be
Kids get in the car in their jammies

It's all over for June Bug Lee
Can't pay the bills so she must flee
It's all over for June Bug Lee
They told us we could have it if we want it that badly.

It's all over for Ms. June Bug Lee
We'll find a parking space and then we'll see..

June Bug Lee.
