Random fact about song
The song was inspired by real life events, as Bynum's own marriage was in trouble when he started writing this tune. He was struggling with the temptation of another woman's amorous advances and as his wife was preparing herself for a trip away, Bynum said, "You picked a fine time to leave me." Bowling then helped Bynum in altering the song to a barroom situation, inspired by the sight of a couple arguing at the Greyhound bus station in Toledo.

Lucille lyrics:


In a bar in Toledo across from the depot
On a barstool she took off her ring
I thought I'd get closer
So I walked on over
I sat down and asked her name
When the drinks finally hit her
She said I'm no quitter
But I finally quit living on dreams
Im hungry for laughter
And here ever after
I'm after whatever the other life brings

In the mirror I saw him
I closely watched him
I thought how he looked out of place
He came to the woman
Who sat there beside me
He had a strange look on his face
The big hands were calloused
He looked like a mountain
For a minute I thought I was dead
But he started shaking
His big heart was breaking
He turned to the woman and said

You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille
Four hungry children and a crop in the field
I've had some bad times
Live thru some sad times
But this time your hurtin' won't heal
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille

After he left us, I ordered more whiskey
I thought how she made him look small
From the lights of the bar room to a rented hotel room
We walked without talking at all
She was a beauty, but when she came to me
She must have thought I lost my mind
I couldn't hold her, the words that he told her
Kept coming back time after time.

You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille
Four hungry children and a crop in the field
I've had some bad times
Live thru some sad times
But this time your hurtin' won't heal
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille

You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille
Four hungry children and a crop in the field
I've had some bad times
Live thru some sad times
But this time your hurtin' won't heal
