It took me 3 days, but I got that lick down! Capo 2nd fret btw. Great song, we miss you Townes.

Excellent writing! A woman's shame deceivers her to feel hurt by others, and she evidently takes this out on the singer. But the singer expresses acceptance that this is simply how things go: "Maybe she has to sing for the sake of the song." I think about emotional healing; we must turn toward the pain and learn that this a part of life, beautiful in its own way.
