"Hard Luck Story" as written by and Phil Wandscher Ryan Adams....
Well I was thinking that I should of
But I didn't ever leave you
But baby I'm leaving tonight
And there's a trucker drinking coffee in the station who can give me a ride

Well I was thinking about heading down to Mobile, Alabama
And that was just last Saturday night
Well I can leave you if I wanna, little baby
And I'm gonna tonight

'Cause I got a bucket full of tears
And a hard luck story
There's a bad moon rising behind
And I swore it to your daddy that I loved you

But I changed my mind
Well I'm a fast talking, hell raising, son of a bitch
And I'm a sinner and I know how to fight
And I can leave you if I wanna, little baby

And I'm gonna tonight
'Cause I got a bucket full of tears
And a hard luck story
And there's a bad moon rising behind

And I swore it to your daddy that I loved you
But I changed my mind
Well I'm a fast talking, hell raising, son of a bitch
And I'm a sinner and I know how to fight

'Cause I can leave you if I wanna, little baby
And I'm gonna tonight
Well I was sitting
I was drinking on a barstool

Thinking how true love could come as a lie
And I never should have left you
But I had to
And I'll bet you there's a man there with you tonight

And I swore it to your daddy that I missed you
But I didn't
If I came back it wouldn't be right
'Cause I can leave you if I wanna, little baby

And I'm gonna tonight

    General CommentRyan Adams' pulls off this honky-tonk style tune about a man who gets burned by his lover one too many times, and finally leaves decides to leave her – Only to regret doing so… even though he knows she's probably already moved on to her next victim. This song would be at home in any trucker's CD collection.
