Hey Eugene
there's still a picture on the wall
hung up in the hall
to our bedroom

Hey Eugene
in it she still looks young
her hair uncombed, undone
wearing glasses

Was it worth it?
do you even know
just a couple of kids
in a car on the road
Hey Eugene

Hey Eugene
the guitar and the words
the youth of your nerves
were a trance

Hey Eugene
we really wish you both well
not really, go to hell
we just want to see her again

Hey Eugene
welcome to the country life
a beard and a wife
and a dog

Hey Eugene
do your dreams ever call
because if they care at all
they'll have you pick up the phone
