I still see tailights in the dark
I still smell your perfume in the air
This is where a fool would fall apart
But I aint going there

Chorus:
Wont go down in a burst of flames
Wont stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it aint strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall
But I wont beg and I wont crawl
A tear or two might fall into my shot of whiskey
But I wont cry no Mississippi

Ther's no where to hide in this small town
I know our paths are bound to cross
I might stand on shakey ground
When I see what I lost but I

Chorus:
Wont go down in a burst of flames
Wont stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it aint strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall
But I wont beg and I wont crawl
A tear or two might fall into my shot of whiskey
But I wont cry no Mississippi

Bridge:
Hate to rain on your parade
Hate to make that bubble bust
Itll take more tears than you ciould make
To turn my heart into rust
