My love she lives on the backwards side of town
My love she lives on the backwards side of town
With her mother and her father and the greif that holds her down
Her hands they're crooked they didn't use to be that way
She listens w/ one and she throws the rest away
She's done alot in her life and she's seen alot today
So if you see her comin' just send her on my way

This mans been cuttin' he's been cuttin' up some flesh
He's been taking lives he's been puttin' 'em to rest
My love she knows him she doesn't want him dead
She's dearly in some trouble as she hides beneath the bed
But now I'm wonderin' just what i can do
I go risk my life and i save hers too
But now I'm bleedin' lyin' dyin' on the floor
She didn't know my name so now i'm dyin' more
Well who's the fool as i die and pass?
I surely don't have to live my life with that

He told her I's a sinkin' ship he told her i was through
And on this here mountain top the preacher says farewell
My bones blowin' everywhere but no one can even tell
This is just the sad story ballad of a man
And this is the sad story I'm that man
