Whore's Blues

Your boy's in love again.
Says it's for real.
Your boy's in love again.
His heart you did steal.
He called all over town,
told everyone the news.
That Christian boy
Gonna' sing the whore's blues.

Your boy wants to take you hand.
He wants to marry you.
Parade you up on hill,
For everyone to view.
He asks his mother
For her permission too.
She said "What's wrong with you?
You're nothing but a fool."

I got a reputation for getting around.
I love all them girls in far away towns.
And when the word is out, I loves them still.
Our hearts are big enough -- We don't need no...

I saw your boy today.
He punched me out.
He cursed my mother,
But I just let him shout.
He said you broke his heart today.
But I said "That happens."
With a shaking hand,
He wrote this on a napkin.

"You broke my heart today.
I saw you dance with George.
You broke my heart today.
You know he's nothing but a whore.
He gets around they say
And you know that it's true.
What will they think of me?
I'm nothing but a fool."
