"Kick Me When I'm Down" as written by Timothy Page O'brien and Gary Tolbert Nicholson....
I had to leave her when I done her wrong
Figured I can come back before too long
And too soon as I moved out, you started comin' around
Just like an old friend to kick me when I'm down

Seems you got the story on the rumor mill
She had a billionaire uncle, she was in his will
You were cryin' at the funeral, makin' mournful sounds
Just like an old friend to kick me when I'm down

Kick me when I'm down, down level with the ground
Spread it all around, all over this town
Everybody I know knows I'm nothin' but a clown
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down?

I figured that I knew when enough was enough
I went back to her place, pick up all my stuff
Well, I was slippin' in the back door, I heard you bouncin' in the bed
I forgot about my toothbrush and I went for my gun instead

Then a picture in the paper, invitation in the mail
I couldn't make the wedding, I couldn't go my bail
I got your honeymoon postcard, jailer brought it around
It's just like an old friend, they want to kick me when I'm down

Kick me when I'm down, down level with the ground
Spread it all around, all over this town
Everybody I know knows I'm nothin' but a clown
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down?

Kick me when I'm down, down level with the ground
Spread it all around, all over this town
Everybody I know knows I'm nothin' but a clown
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down?
Just like an old friend to kick me when I'm down
