Hard Luck Story

Well I was thinking that I should have
But I didn't ever leave you
But baby I'm leaving tonight
There's a trucker drinking coffee in the station who can give me a ride
Well I was thinking 'bout a heading down to Mobile Alabama
And that was just last Saturday night
Well I can leave you if I wan't to little baby and I'm gonna tonight

'Cause I gotta bucket full of tears and a hard luck story
There's a bad moon risin' behind
And I swore to your Daddy that I loved you, but I changed my mind
I'm a fast talking, hell raising, son-of a bitch
I'm a sinner and I know how to fight
And I can leave you if I want to little baby and I'm gonna tonight

'Cause I gotta bucket full of tears and a hard luck story
There's a bad moon risin' behind
And I swore to your Daddy that I loved you, but I changed my mind
I'm a fast talking, hell raising, son-of a bitch
I'm a sinner and I know how to fight
And I can leave you if I want to little baby and I'm gonna tonight

Well I was sitting I was drinking on a barstool thinking
How true love becomes a lie
And I never should have left you, but I had to
And I bet you there's a man there with you tonight
And I swore to your daddy that I missed you but I didn't
If I came back it wouldn't be right
'Cause I can leave you if I want to little baby and I'm gonna tonight
