The exit's at the back ,  the exit's at the back how come you've not run through it yet , left me and not looked back well I don't know I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2 but I don't care have I been so mean to you , have I been so mean to you  have I been so mean there's nothing left that's mean that I could do that I don't know I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2 but I don't care   if there goes another one       run down babe run down if there goes another one       run down babe run down if there goes another one       run down babe run down cos I don't care say you love me still  , oh say you love me still let the doctor take your temperature I'm  sure you must be ill but I don't know I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2 but I don't care is that your car in the drive ,  isn't that your car in the drive how come you've not got in it yet , driven off anywhere you like well I don't know I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2 but I don't care   if there goes another one       run down babe run down if there goes another one       run down babe run down if there goes another one       run down babe run down cos I don't care    instrumental verse   the joke will be on me , oh the joke will be on me when finally you leave with someone else and let me be and I won't know I won't know what's going on and I wont know what went wrong oh I won't know what's going on and I wont know what went wrong but I wont care...   if there goes another one       run down babe run down if there goes another one       run down babe run down if there goes another one       run down babe run down cos I don't care rpt 1st verse then end

Accidents will happen at sea have you seen what happened to me oh to any body else but me oh everybody else but me could see that you're a bad bad woman my friends have been running you down but I've been so blue and lonesome since you took all my money and and the train and left town oh to any body else but me oh everybody else but me could see that you're a bad bad woman but I just cant seem to help myself or ever let you be oh why I just cant seem to forget my self and give my poor head peace.. my papa he told me the truth he said son a girl like that will be the ruin of you oh to any body else but me oh everybody else but me could see that you're a bad bad woman oh any body else but me oh any body else but me oh now everybody else but me could see you were a bad woman to me such a bad woman to me but I just cant seem to help myself or ever let you be why I just cant seem to forget my self or give my poor head peace

Sometimes 04:29
sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my wind sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind well I just can’t keep from crying some times well I just can‘t keep from crying sometimes sometimes I can feel the tears roll steady on my cheeks sometimes I can feel the tears roll steady on my cheeks sometimes I can feel the tears roll steady on my cheeks and I just cant keep from crying sometimes well I just cant keep from crying sometimes sometimes troubles rain down fire from the sky sometimes troubles rain down fire from the sky sometimes troubles rain down fire from the sky and I just cant keep from crying sometimes well I just cant keep from crying sometimes instrumental verse sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind and I just cant keep from crying sometimes well I just cant keep from crying sometimes well I just cant keep from crying

well I wish you would go and leave me yes I do oh the only thing that's stopping me from leaving you is to spare myself the pain of telling you , I never want to see you again oh I wish you would go and leave me yes I do believe me yes I do believe me yes I do can’t you find yourself some other love what ever it is I have to give you it’s never enough I'd rather be on my own in an empty nest from where the bird has flown oh I wish you would go and leave me yes I do believe me yes I do believe me yes I do Can’t you pack your troubles up and go I guess where we're both bound to end up we'll never know but as we walk on down that road would it help you , if I lightened your heavy load oh I wish you would go and leave me yes I do believe me yes I do believe me yes I do believe me yes I do

Get Real 03:18
well philosophy is no good to me I don't know what I'm doing so I don't need to know why you think that love will leave you fearless but fear will leave you loveless every time you think that death will understand you when he comes to take your hand and close your eyes but he will only bring you pain then he will bring it on again to hear you cry you need to get with it get real get real to go without x4 even bitterness is precious so go easy on yours boy don't use it up your hope is your projection of despair where you despair of looking up you think your wife will understand you when you leave her for a younger fuller cup life is for the living and the dead who don't know how to live it up you need to get with it get real get real to go without x4 so criticize constructively deconstruct the vain conceits inside your mind let your karma run your dogma over let your senses guide you through the lies when your perpetual emotions have stalled in the darkness of wasted time don't let it fool you into thinking that every thing you think your doing will turn out fine.... you need to get with it get real get real to go without x4 I don't need to know why do you need to know why ... ad infinitum etc

Sunset Blues 05:04
don’t you go and confess to me don’t you go and profess to be mine I don’t want your history got no need for a mystery fire now it seems so clear to me baby as your flame burns higher though we burned like the setting sun that devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come though we burned like the setting sun the devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come well you don’t belong to me so don’t cling on to me so tight when it’s time for you to go then I guess you should know when it's right because when push comes to shove and then shove comes to love well you know how we fight though we burned like the setting sun that devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come though we burned like the setting sun the devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come
