My daddy told me a long time ago
Never take candy from a stranger
I should've thought about that when I met you
I should've run away from the danger
Oh, but like a child, I believed what you said
I let your lies run dreams through my head
I let you have what you wanted, and now you’re gone
And you left me cussin’ and a-cryin’ and a-carryin’ on
‘Bout the way you hurt me
'Bout my bad mistakes
Well, I guess I have to keep on carryin’ on, 'til they carry me on when I’m dead from heartaches

You moved right in and took me
Course, you knew I was impressed
All the time I thought you loved me, yes I did
Now I know I was just another contest
But I'm walking the floor, thinking about you now
Wondering how I'm gonna make it without you
I've been a poor, poor poor poor fool, to let you do me wrong
To let you leave me cussin' and a-cryin' and a-carryin' on
‘Bout the way you hurt me
And 'bout my bad mistakes
Well, I guess I have to keep on carryin’ on, 'til they carry me on when I’m dead from heartaches

Mark my word, you gonna pay the price
You gonna meet somebody, someday, somewhere, that’s gonna make you think twice
You gonna meet yourself somebody that’s gonna turn you on
She’ll leave you cussin’ and cryin’ and a carryin’ on
‘Bout the way she hurt you
'Bout your bad mistakes
Well, I guess you have to keep on carryin’ on, 'til they carry you on when you're dead from heartaches

‘Bout the way you hurt me!
And 'bout my bad mistakes!
Well, I guess I have to keep on carryin’ on, 'til they carry me on when I’m dead from heartaches
