Elton John - "Shoulder Holster Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Now it was jsut like Frankie and Johnny
And it was just like Stagger Lee

Dolly Summers was a simple girl

From a mid-west family

With a stucco home and her own Mustang

And a charge account at Sears

She had everything that a girl could want

To live happy for the rest of her years

But the thing that she wanted most of all
Was the thing that she had lost

To the arms of a downtown black jack hustler
By the name of Candyfloss
They'd slipped town on a late night train

Heading for the West
Dolly slipped behind the wheel of her Mustang

With a piece between her breast

If it seemed just like a movie

They should have had a picture of Dolly's face
Or a night of bad TV

As she drove across the country
With daggers drawn for her fallen man

An venom in her heart

It was nearly dawn when she caught them up
Making out in a picnic park

But the thing that shook her rigid
As she fumbled for her gun

Was the state of the man that she'd married once

And as she looked back on the chances
Adn thought of as the only one

That she'd passed up at home
Well she quietly dumped pistol in a ditch
And she headed home alone
