lyrics:  

A good man named Butch loved Peggy
For that way that she rolls
For the way that she smiled
To ease his heavy load

Well Peggy loved Butch
For the way that he was a man
For the way that he smelled
And held her in his strong hands

(chorus:)
Now, how could he leave
His sweet little flower
Before he knows
Just how she'll bloom
And how could he leave
His Sierra Nevada
When he knows another spring
Will surely come soon
Deep inside I think Butch felt
The winter ice would never melt
The storms piled in off the sea
They kissed as the fire burned low
They kissed as the fire burned low
It wasn't so much that he lost control
He faded away with the coals
He faded away with the coals
Those coal gray coals
On that cold gray morning
Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo Oooo

Well the fire Butch made
Was made for all to feel
But he never felt the warmth
He was blown around the backstop of a baseball field
Peggy had to wonder
What was happening to her man
She could just hold him tight
Sitting round the fire with a bluegrass band

(chorus)
