Last night I dreamed that I was dreaming of you And from a window across the lawn I watched you undress Wearing your sunset of purple tightly woven around your hair That rose in strangled ebony curls Moving in a yellow bedroom light The air is wet with sound The faraway yelping of a wounded dog And the ground is drinking a slow faucet leak Your house is so soft and fading as it soaks the black summer heat A light goes on and the door opens And a yellow cat runs out on the stream of hall light and into the yard
A wooden cherry scent is faintly breathing the air I hear your champagne laugh You wear two lavender orchids One in your hair and one on your hip A string of yellow carnival lights comes on with the dusk Circling the lake with a slowly dipping halo And I hear a banjo tango
And you dance into the shadow of a black poplar tree And I watched you as you disappeared I watched you as you disappeared I watched you as you disappeared I watched you as you disappeared
They said that Louise was not half-bad It was written on the walls and window shades And though she'd act the little girl A deceiver, don't believe her, that's her trade
Sometimes a bottle of perfume, flowers and maybe some lace Men brought Louise 10-cent trinkets Their intentions were easily traced
And everybody knew at times she cried Ah but women like Louise they get by
And everybody thought it kind of sad When they found Louise in her room They'd always put her down below their kind Still some cried when she died this afternoon
Louise rode home on the mail train Somewhere to the South I heard them say Too bad it ended so ugly Too bad she had to go this way
And the wind is blowin' cold tonight So goodnight, Louise, goodnight.
