    @cokeboy2: indeed, that could apply to Courtney Love. For me, I can't help but think about Audrey Mae Sheppard (Hank Williams' wife) as well... Damn good song by the way and Tom Waits is phenomenal as usual.

    As said on ''This song is about a man who accidentally comes upon fame and marries a greedy woman seeking it herself. As the years wear on, the man grows tired of fame and becomes an alcoholic. He finds himself reaching for help from her but she is only concerned with herself, so he shoots himself with a shotgun. For the rest of the widow's life, she rides on the coattales of her late husband for fame and fortune, crying shamelessly in public. This tale is very similar to the life of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, but nobody knows if this was intentional. '' Hmm.
