she tried lyrics – bubba sparxxx

(good lord, may god have mercy on my soul)
i love her, but you never would know
that by the way i just let my girl go
with tears in her eyes from years of the lyin’
she backed on up and disappeared down the drive-
way, hey, what can i say, all we have is nothing today
i did my thing, and she did hers,
but my crime’s a wee bit worse
and now i’m sitting her all alone with my guilt
just me and the dogs and home that we built
it was then it was hers, even though bubba bought it
but bubba wouldn’t leave just like her mother called it
from the p, hold it to the blue flame
god, forgive me for causing you pain
all it was, ain’t no more, cause my babys gone
and when it rains it pours.

[chorus]
she tried to tell me i needed to be strong
i wasn’t listening, and now my baby’s gone

one for the pleasure, two for the sin
three for the family we coulda been
had i not been so concerned
with this life no spoken words
couldn’t begin to undue what’s done
deep within i know that you must run
far away, from the thought of my smile
and the broken dream of us walking that isle
i first saw betty in my nanny white’s yard…
the breast where the best, and the f*nny “my lord”
i fly country girl, just working them gifts
she’s my queen, was a virgin i guess
but i ain’t never ask, and ain’t never tell
but betty had the cash every time i went to jail
and how did i reward her loyalty
let her walk in and see her cousin joy on me

[chorus]

it’s been six months, and still no word
i try to carry on like it still don’t hurt
hoes come around, but i still wont’ flirt
drinking worse, and the pills don’t work
last i heard she was in birmingham
living with a good hard working man
and lookin’ back on it, that’s exactly what she wanted
not a rebel with a p*ssion for the moment
i live for the fiddle, and a kick, and a snare
i take my love and i stick it in there
moved a jimmy and made this song
all because my baby is gone
