You just can't trust them pretty girls
They're only here to wreck your world
And make sure you never get to sleep at night.
I don't know the reasons why
They all want to hang you out to dry
You ain't got the strength enough left to fight.

Oh, but I'm, well I'm in trouble
Like I know you're bound to get in trouble.
And I know that it won't be long
Before the man you love is loving someone new.

I walked to the river bridge
And stood myself upon the ledge
and screamed out to everyone "Let me be".
I got me a worried mind
Gonna find me a worried kind of girl
Who's lonesome just like me.

And I know that I'm just one of your poor boys
That you sworn you'd never leave behind.
And I see, I can see right through you
And I know you're not my kind.

Now all my money's gone
To someplace that it don't belong
I'm singing the broken down poor boy blues.
I ain't got nothing to my name
But nothing is my favorite game to play
Cause there's never anything to lose.

And I know that I'm in trouble
Like I know you're bound to get in trouble.
And I know that it won't be long
Before the man you love is loving someone new.
