lyrics

rented car, painted woman, borrowed time,
the heartaches almost made me lose my mind.
when i left my happy home, for that lonesome motel room,
in a rented car, with a painted woman, on borrowed time.

rented cars take you to places that you don't want to go.
painted woman are the kind you never really get to know.
borrowed time is the hard part, the interest is too high,
rented car, painted woman, borrowed time.

rented car, painted woman, borrowed time,
the heartaches nearly made me lose my mind.
when i left my happy home, for that lonesome motel room,
in a rented car, with a painted woman, on borrowed time.

(humming with recitation)
"honey, it all started out as a routine business trip.
you packed my underwear and socks
and drove me to the airport
and kissed me goodbye
and said you'd be lonesome,
and i said not to worry,
that i'd be home in just a few days,
and now here i am writing you from god knows where.
i rented a car and checked into the motel
and went over some papers for the next day.
('cause, you see)
the company was counting on me to cinch the big deal.
we met by chance when i took a break.
i saw her reflection in the cigarette machine,
and one drink led to another,
and now here i am ashamed to come home.
kiss our son and daughter goodnight for me,
and when they get old enough to understand,
tell them their daddy was a good man,
all except this one time.”
