She Went Out For Cigarettes
Chely Wright Lyrics


He was glued to the T.V.
When she asked him for the keys
Said, "I'm going to the market
Is there anything you need?"
The first quarter was underway
He never missed a play

She pulled out of the driveway
Took a left at the light
Didn't stop at the market
She just drove right on by
Across the railroad tracks
She never once looked back

She went out for cigarettes
And just kept driving on
He didn't even know it yet
Bur she's gone
As far away as she can get
Passed the point of no regret
She went out for cigarettes
And just kept driving on

Half time is over
The sun is sinking low
It's almost time for supper
But there is nothing on the stove
He looks up from his easy chair
He just noticed she's not there

She made a stop at the bank
Took out some cash
Now she's racing down the highway
On a full tank of gas
As fast as she can go
To where she does not know

She went out for cigarettes
And just kept driving on
He didn't even know it yet
Bur she's gone
As far away as she can get
Passed the point of no regret
She went out for cigarettes
And just kept driving on

She went out for cigarettes
And drove on

Good song! I've always liked Chely Wright. The Caprice wagon was a common mom car in the 1980s. Those station wagons always take me back.

Fave female country artist of all time hands down!!!

I never new she was gay till just a min ago, and don't care . When I listen to this lady's incredible voice, that issue is not what i am studying. Now, as far as vid goes, seeing a mom with kids in back of station wagon hit home, because while driving OTR semi, I saw just that. Speaks volumes when someone reaches that point where they decide living in a car on the highway is a better option  than any immediate alternative. I guess you got to go out for cigarettes ,....and just keep driving on...

Melissa Denton

Nope that was when the kids got abandoned somewhere and got them back safely to someone the other parent except for one got left behind....... Sad!!! Always the girl

Martian
