about

A sad tale of woe. Inspired by the great Hank Williams.

lyrics

Don’t ask me about my love
The girl I once held close
She’s not here any more
I’m feeling so morose

All the signs were positive
I thought we had a good thing
The good times kept on rolling
I felt just like a king

Ooh what a fool I was!

She traded me in
For another guy
A newer model
To keep her satisfied

Sent me a text
That said goodbye
It was a pity
How I cried

Once I was her number one
Walking arm in arm
We glowed with newfound love
I was smitten by her charms

I tried to make her happy
For my moment in the sun
Then I got her message
Saying baby I’ll be gone

Ooh what a fool I was!

She traded me in
For another guy
A newer model
To keep her satisfied

Sent me a text
That said goodbye
It was a pity
How I cried

I tell my/self
It don’t matter
She’s out of mind and out of sight
But her memory
Is like a dream
That haunts me day and night

Nothing lasts forever
Is what the poets say
But as I walk the streets at night
I wish it weren’t that way

The other girls I meet
They try to make me smile
I tell myself to let it go
But it’s useless to deny

Ooh what a fool I was!

She traded me in
For another guy
A newer model
To keep her satisfied

Sent me a text
That said goodbye
It was a pity
How I cried

I got a choice
To either die
Or quit this lonely town

With its ghosts
Of the past
That only bring me down

I’m gonna hit
That road to---night
When she comes round
I’ll be out of sight

Where I’m bound
I’ll start a--gain
I’m gonna find somebody to love
Yes I’ll find somebody to love
