Like a killer at large
You strolled down Bourbon Street
Lookin' for an easy mark
With every man you meet
And I never saw the devil
Behind your rain blue eyes
Spellbound by your long legs and you ...
Here we go....
You're too hard to handle
Scandal after scandal
You must think I'm naive
I don't want you to go
But I need you to leave
It's wild alibis and those outrageous lies
You expect ...
I'm tryin' not to panic, I'm gettin' all romantic
Gettin' soft with everything I say and do.
I'm talkin' hours on the phone, puttin' on that sweet cologne
I'm even puttin' down the toilet seat for ...
Deep in the mountain of Harlan County
Employed by the Cumberland coal company
The pay is short, the days are long
But our labor union laws are coming on strong
So I drink this whiskey for my throa ...
I was singing at the ol' Broken Spoke
I could have swore she came walking in
Forgot the words to a song that I wrote
Must be losing my mind once again
Her daddy is a southern Baptist preacher

You warned me from the start not to let you break my heart
I guess you don't know who your talking too
I'll bet you money no matter how much honey
I'm about to change you ...
Pinch me I must be dreaming
Waking up with you and feelin'
the tender touch of your good morning kiss
no where else on earth
is better than being next to you
next to heaven
it doesn't get any be ...
I got a letter from your lawyer
And you got one from mine
They say It's gonna be final
Once we sign that dotted line
We'll I guess we'll get our freedom
And a so called fresh new start
But whe ...
i still think about us
in the rush that we felt
with the rag top down and the radio blasting
you were riding shot gun
in nothing but a bikini and a seat belt
looking better than the law should ha ...
We both work hard for money already spent
Blaming each other for where it all went
Never thinking of love only paying the loans
Griping bout' bills and keeping up with the Jones
Just once let's fo ...
With the world in the palm of his hands
Slipping through his fingers just like grains of sand
He don't know his hourglass is losing time
Till she run out of patience and leaves him far behind
Well I was thumbing through the channels
And I saw a sight to see
A so-called country singer, there singing on MTV
And I began to think - had she ever heard a thing
Had she ever been to Texas wher ...
He calls from a hotel in downtown Dallas
Says he won't be home for three more days
She gets so lonely in her Houston hill top palace
Talking to her self as their two-year-old plays
She rocks the b ...
He starts to think when she winks that he's somewhere he shouldn't be
He may be alone but at home someone's wearing his ring
So he heads for the door and ignores the devil o ...

Well I've done some things that I can't undo
I took your trust and I tore it into
No man in his right mind would have said it's over
Still I told you goodbye completely sober
I wish I could say ...
well, he's a no good for nothing
but she wishes he was good for something
besides his behind looking so fine
in those wragler jeans
well all her friends can't help but stare
at his blue denim der ...
