Words by Jerry Leger / Music by Andrew Barker


In Beauty's Ditch (Leger)
The make up smears
The monster builds the fears
The imagination steers
In beauty's ditch

The day will walk again
In tomorrow's clothes and Stetson
Looking for a bargain
In beauty's ditch

Cigarette smoke
A rich man's joke
The beggar provoked
In beauty's ditch

Fidget with the key
Motel with one vacancy
Too drunk to dream
In beauty's ditch

Fly on the wall
Stalker on a call
Cinderella is having a ball
In beauty's ditch

Shooting up in the dark
Never missing the mark
Feast or starve
In beauty's ditch

Rock 'n' roll shoes
Honky tonk blues
Howling at the moves
In beauty's ditch

How did it get so loud
Accident gets the biggest crowd
Killing to stay proud
In beauty's ditch
