"Good Guys Don't Always Wear White" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richard Sambora....
You say you don't like my kind
A bitter picture in your mind
No, it don't matter what I say
I hear you bitchin' when I walk away
I'll never be what you want me to be
You tell me I'm wrong but I disagree
I ain't go no apology
Just because I don't look like you, talk like you, think like you
Judge and jury, a hangman's noose
I see them in your eyes

Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white

You judge a man who don't stand in line
Just because he ain't on your side
You know the man who wears those shoes
If you cut me don't I bleed like you? (You know I do)

I don't know what you've been told
Can't buy guts with a pot o' gold
A rich man's poor if he got no soul
Rich man, poor man, beggar man, king
All that shit don't mean a thing
Do you know which one's behind those eyes?
It's all a disguise

Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white

Hey baby, whose side you on?
You think you got it all figured out where we belong
Forget all about your dark from light
Day from night
Wrong from right

Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white

Tell your Mama, baby
Good guys don't always wear white
Don't always wear, don't always wear
Don't always wear, don't always wear
Don't always wear, don't always wear
White

    General CommentThis is really a song about not judging a book by its cover. When Jon sings "Good guys don't always wear white" (the actual line) it means that the steriotype of all the good guys coming in one package and form is wrong. Its all about looking on the inside.
