Saul Whitewater

Lyrics and Music by Nate Hegyi

Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
I work nights at the superstation
I got a wife, three daughters, three mouths to feed
that’s why I do it, why I deal with my supervisor

They call me last son of the automobile
Papa was a big-shot dealer whose shop went broke
we haven’t spoken in ten long years
since the army and the argument about serving

Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
I go to methodist church on Sundays
my youngest daughter won’t learn how to walk
and my oldest just rejected Pastor Stevens

But I got a wife that I love
Anna’s thirty-three but looks eighteen in my eyes
every year we’ll visit her stillborn son
brush the leaves and graffiti from his grave

Oh Anna it’s a perfect day
I ain’t that smart but I know that you love me
and I ain’t worried ’bout Tony from bingo
I know you’re friends and you see him every Monday

Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
and I call this town my life

Hello, hello my name is Saul Whitewater
lets shake hands, Anna, we’ll be friends
