Everybody knows where you go when the sun goes down
I think you only live to see the lights of town
I wasted my time when I would try try try
Cause when the lights have lost their glow you’ll cry cry cry

Soon your sugar daddies will all be gone
you’ll wake up some cold day and find you’re alone
You’ll call for me but I’m gonna tell you bye bye bye
When I turn around and walk away you’ll cry cry cry

You're gonna cry cry cry and you’ll cry alone
When everyone’s forgotten and you’re left on you're own
You're gonna cry cry cry

I lie awake at night and wait til you come in
You’ll stay a little while and then you're gone again
Every question that I ask I get a lie lie lie
For every lie you tell you’re gonna cry cry cry
When you’re fickle love gets old no one will care for you
And you’ll come back to me for a little love thats true
I'll tell you no and then you’ll ask me why why why
When I remind you of all of this you’ll cry cry cry

You're gonna cry cry cry and you’ll want me then
It'll hurt when you think of the fool you've been
You're gonna cry cry cry

    General Comment:Isn't this song about how he feels he looks in his first wife's, Vivian, eyes? She was stuck at home raising the kids while he was living the good life out on the road. I love this song, one of my top five Cash tunes.

    General Comment:cheating whores die alone. After their looks and the "goods" they have to offer are gone, the stupid men who follow them loose interest. The girl goes back to the good bloke(johhny cash, a model bf/husband in his younger days of course...lol) and he tells to go.

    General Comment:It does seem to be pretty obvious what it means, although saying this song is how his first wife looks at him goes right along with how Walk The Line (movie) portrayed their marriage.

    Lol man listen to Johnny Cash almost all his song have the same basic tune or start or both.
    It's good Johnny didn't focus on the tune so much as the words and meaning the tunes doesn't need to be Mozart when the lyrics and vocals are good xD
    Anyway Great song love Johnny R.I.P. still got all his stuff =]
