Tom T. Hall — Big Motel On The Mountain lyrics

This song is for you big motel on the mountain just in thought to pass the time
And for the people who have loved and some have been loved
And some were wanted inside your walls
And for the 22 year old college girl
Who made that last semester with her smile along your halls
And for the trav'ling salesman and the Friday night time dinner out time crowd
Some were seeking stimulation in the laughter noise and drinks the music loud
This song is for you big motel on the mountain just in thought to pass the time
[ piano ]
And for the Wednesday NightAuxiliary that meets inside your banquet room at nine
For the women's club and the social leads and the regular attendants every time
For the lost abandoned child by your northside entrance left alone to die
For the long haired wide eyed boy selling dope and looking for a place to hide
This song is for you big motel on the mountain just in thought to pass the time
[ piano ]
For the middle aged executive who thought he'd seen enough
To slash his wrist in No 10
And for the 32 year old housewife who got caught with her best friend's husband
She ain't around to try again
For the 7 year old girl swingin' slidin' on the west side near the pool
Saying why couldn't dad come home with us mama
Why you got to put me in that school
This song is for you big motel on the mountain just in thought to pass the time
