You got under my skin again
You raised the stakes
Took your time and made your move

Your tongue said come
Cowboy won’t you stay
Then you closed your hazel eyes
Make like a tree
Lay down some roots

Well mama had to split
Papa can’t forget
Still me and the babies grew

I spend so much time
Cutting tires and vines
That even the wind is looking to turn me loose

But listen I’m not saying I cannot change
Not saying I’m not afraid
Sure ain’t the first the blues have kicked around

I know part of me is wicked
Although some of me is brave
??? to let you down

You say I don’t want to hear
How better off she’ll be
At dawn when the rooster crows

So play me a song
If something goes wrong
Nobody has to go

Well you got under my skin again
You raised the blinds
And pulled the sun into the room

I remember how you told me everything rhymes
So just choose your word boy
Then bend it like a spoon

First you had me as a friend
Then you had me up against the piano with the broken teeth
With your typewriter ribbon
You had me again
And your bed straw and fire???

You got under my skin again
You raised the stakes
Took your time and made your move

Your tongue said come
Cowboy won’t you stay
You closed your hazel eyes
Make like a tree
Lay down some roots
