Angel on the Line Lyrics

In an old dusty factory, I saw you there
Hiding your blue eyes and your long blonde hair
Behind a frown with pain on your face
To let us all know how much you hate that place

At first I didn't talk to you I was scared it must seem
Of the beauty who'd make up the most of my dreams
You were the prettiest bluebird never to sing
Next to all us cockroaches and the loud, fast machines

You had beauty, you had grace
But you couldn't tell by your face
With a factory frown and a cigarette for show
You were an angel on the line
Home from college, working nights
You were too good you were too smart
For this job
But you weren't for me

Now I didn't smoke when you went out for a light
I'd stand in your fumes just to be by your side
First time I seen you smile was when I brought you a pack
I coughed out my lungs while you stood back and laughed

You told me all the stories of the college town nights
All the parties and drinking and the big city lights
And I did my best to show you life on a farm
Hunting and fishing and the straw bale cut arms

You had beauty, you had grace
But you couldn't tell by your face
With the factory frown and a cigarette for show
You were an angel on the line
Home from college, working nights
You were too good you were too smart
For this job
But you weren't for me

June went by too fast and July flew by
You were counting down days and I was saving up nights
When the school year did come around you came up to me
Hiding tears in my eyes, you put a peck on my cheek

Now my job still sucks and you're still long gone
Factories still dusty and the nights are still long
Hope all's well with you 'cause I'm here doing fine
Day dreaming of working by an angel down the line
