Charley Pride – I Ain't All Bad lyrics

I picked last night in Tucson I sang 'em a country song
Missed my plane this morning Lord cause we parted all night long
I'm out here now usin' my thumb tryin' to make it to El Paso
Cause tonight I play at the cabarete they done told it on the radio
To a country singer it's a lonesome road with time hangin' heavy on my hands
If I take a little pleasure and a little bit of love baby that don't makes me all bad

I've been high and I've been low and I've been to San Antone
But the worst by far than I've ever been was when I've been alone
Tomorrow night I'm in Austin I've got some old friends there
Cause there's old Jeff and Willie and Sam and a girl with the long dark hair
To a country singer...

There's one last stop down in Shreveport on this tour of one night stands
And I've got some time but no peace of mind till I'm back on the road again
If my old guitar had learned to talk it'll tell about the things I done
There's a mighty good woman back in big D but never ever let me come home
To a country singer...
If I take a little pleasure and a little bit of love baby that don't makes me all bad
