Back in the woods in a shotgun shack
Right above the railroad tracks
In old junk cars and tractor parts
Marylou she grew up
Hungry love

Her daddy he left with a new barmaid
Mama's in town cause she loves to play
Marylou she's all alone with an old stray dog
That she loves to hug
Hungry love

To get away from it all she puts her headphones on
And turns the music way up loud
The first boy who comes along
And pays her any mind at all
Will be the only love she's ever found
It's in her blood
Hungry love

Marylou turned seventeen
With a baby bouncing on her knee
Her sweetheart left in a pick-up truck
So she did just what her mama had done
Hungry love

To get away from it all she puts her headphones on
And turns the music way up loud
The first boy who comes along
And pays her any mind at all
Will be the only love she's ever found
It's in her blood
Hungry love
It's in her blood
Hungry love
Back in the woods in a shotgun shack
Right above the railroad tracks
