If you wanna go and leave your man
Go on, I’ll understand
But then the night gets dark, all is still
Pray for me, I know you will
Hard row to hoe all by yourself
You hit the city, it swallow you whole
Y’got no friends darlin’, t’satisfy your soul
And then the sidewalk ends, lights all red, y’say t’yourself, y'better off dead
Hard row to hoe all by yourself
Walk out on me, walk out on him
You need no man to do you in
But if the night gets dark, all is still
I'll pray for you, you know I will
Hard row to hoe all by yourself
All by yourself

    General CommentKind of reminds me of the ELO song Evil Woman.

    A woman needs no man to "do her in", so she's hard row to hoe all by herself.

    The man doesn't mind because he knows she'll just be a hoe all by herself.
