about

This track was inspired by the great Hank Williams, with an additional nod to Tom Petty.

lyrics

My education started
The day that I met you
You took me for a patsy
I didn’t have a clue

You knew that you were lookin good
And you got my attention
I thought I hit the jackpot
The colored lights were flashin

Fool me once and I’ll hand it to you
Fool me twice and I say we’re through

I got to put you down
Gotta set you free
Lyin and a cheatin
That ain’t for me
You think I am so blind
But baby I can see
What you’re calling love
That ain’t for me

It started like a dream with
My every wish fulfilled
Starry nights and satin sheets
And champagne that was chilled

I may be blind but I ain’t dumb
To stark reality
For you I was a steppingstone
To a ticket that was free

You said babe don't be a bore
All is fair in love and war

I got to put you down
Gotta set you free
Lyin and a cheatin
That ain’t for me
You think I am so blind
But baby I can see
What you’re calling love
That ain’t for me

It ain’t no use protesting
You can’t erase the pain
Caused by your endless lies
And your fingerpointing blame

So go and find another guy, a
Gullible young fool
A sucker who’ll give it up
And dive into your pool

I’d say I was a lucky guy
To be the one to say goodbye

I got to put you down
Gotta set you free
Lyin and a cheatin
That ain’t for me
You think I am so blind
But baby I can see
What you’re calling love
That ain’t for me
