Old Dan Tannengraph, you can keep your cold, dead stare
Pretty lady's waiting out in the coal stained air
And I've watched your hair turn gray
Throughout the course of one fateful day

And she got (she got)
Shy water in her eyes
She got (she got)
Shy water in her eyes

Well, on that creaky wooden porch you can think about what you've lost
While some nurse you don't know brings you paper cups full of pills
Well, your pretty lady's somewhere, lonely and turning gray
What a mistake you have made

She got (she got)
Shy water in her eyes
She got (she got)
Shy water in her eyes

Well you can stick to your guns if you please
It don't bother me, oh-oh
You can stick to your guns if you need
You need

Well if there's a moral here that's to be learned
It's not to let a good thing pass you by
Right now, you're staring straight ahead
Beside some girl with shy water in her eyes

And she got (she got)
Shy water in her eyes
She got (she got)
Shy water in her eyes

Well you can stick to your guns if you please
It don't bother me, oh-oh
