You used to be a good man without you and I
Used to be a good man, he's the apple of his eye

Oh he is a bad man, he's got whiskey on his breath
He comes home, passes out, he's drinking himself to death

Well when the time comes
You've got to go
Can you look them in the eye?
It's over now
They're on their own
You say you'll be there
You'll watch them grow
And you send them cards
And the years, they roll on
They're on their own

Used to be a good man, without you and mine
Used to be a good man, he's the apple of his eye

When the time comes
You've got to go
Can you look them in the eye?
It's over now
You're on your own
You say you'll be there
You'll watch them grow
And you send them cards
And the years, they roll on
You're on your own
