Good idea for a thread, Julie. I like Kacey Musgraves, and I think that is her best song.

I'll come in with this from the Pistol Annies. For those who don't know, they are a sort of "super group" made up of Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley, and Ashley Monroe, who also share songwriting credits on this:


HOUSEWIFE'SS PRAYER


I've been thinking about
Setting my house on fire
Can't see a way out of the mess I'm in
And the bills keep getting higher
All I need is a match and a gallon of gas
God I'm getting tired
Gonna set this house on fire

I've been thinking about
Going off the deep end
My man can't get no overtime
And the baby ain't been sleeping
All I need is a washing machine
These hands have gone fading
I'm about to go off the deep end

Well I've been thinking about
All these pills I'm taking
I wash them down with an ice cold beer
And a love I ain't been making
Oh, I feel like I'm burning up
With words I ain't been saying
And all these pills I'm taking

I've been thinking about
Setting my house on fire
