Me and Your Cigarettes by Miranda Lambert

I think this song is perfect in comparison to what we discussed about Campion this Wednesday. In this song, Miranda Lambert compares herself to a cigarette. What I took away from this song was that she was disregarding herself by thinking she is only worth of sex and not love. This reminds me of the girls that Campion wrote about in his Book of Ayres. He said that he liked the “countrey girls” that he basically did not have to treat well and court to get what he wanted.

“Me And Your Cigarettes”

Gives you something you can do with your hands
Makes you look cool and feel like a man
In the morning you will probably regret me
Me and your cigarettes

Started young it’s too late to quit
Most call it a bad, bad habit
Your mama told you, you could end up dead
With me, me and your cigarettes

Always there every time you need me
It ain’t love but just like nicotine
You’re addicted to a feeling you can only get
From me and your cigarettes

Light us up and then throw us down
Walk away when we hit the ground
How they going to feel when you come back around here and see
It’s just you and your cigarettes

Always there every time you need me
It ain’t love but just like nicotine
You’re addicted to a feeling you can only get
From me and your cigarettes
