box it came in lyrics – wanda jackson

my clothes are all ragged my goodwill coat’s not the best
and i’m a walking on cardboard in my last dollar dress
i looked in the closet for my wedding gown
but the box that it came in was all that i found
he took everything with him that wasn’t nailed down
bet he’s got a new sweetheart to fill my wedding gown
but somewhere i’ll find him then i’ll have peace of mind
and the box he comes home in will be all satin lined
[ steel ]
he took everything with him…
