God have mercy on my soul
I love her, but you never would know,
There by the way I just let my girl go.
With tears in her eyes,
From the year of the lies,
She backed on up and dissapeared out the drive.
Wait, hey, what can I say?
All we had means nothin today.
I did my thing and she did hers,
But my crimes are a wee bit worse.
And now I'm sittin here all alone wit my guilt,
Just me and the dogs, in the home that we built.
It was Andy's and hers even though Bubba bought it,
But Bubba wouldn't leave just like her motha called it.
From the pink, on into the blue flames,
God forgive me for causin you pain.
All it was, ain't no more,
Cuz my baby's gone, and when it rains, it pours.
She tried to tell me
I needed to be strong
I wasn't listenin
And now my baby's gone
One for the pleasure, two for the sin,
Three for the family, we coulda been.
Had I not been so concerned,
With this life no spoken words.
Couldn't begin to undo whats done,
Deep within I know that you must run.
Far away from the thought of my smile,
And the broken dream of us walkin that aisle.
I first saw Betty & my nanny right charred,
The breats were the best and her fanny.. My Lord.
A fly country-girl just workin them gifts,
She's my queen, is a virgin I guess.
But I ain't never ask and I ain't never tell,
But Betty had the cash at the time I went to jail.
And how did I reward her loyalty?
Let her walk in and see her cousin Joy on me.
Its been 6 months and still no word.
I try to carry on like it still don't hurt.
Hoes comin round but I still won't flirt.
Drinkin is worse, and the pills don't work.
Last I heard, she was in Birmingham,
Livin with a good hard workin man.
And lookin back on it, that's exactly what she wanted.
Not a rebel with a passion for tha moment.
I live for the fiddle & a kick in the snare,
I take my love and I stick it in there.
Moved it gently and made this song,
All because, my baby's gone.
