I've been run down
And I've been lied to
And I don't know why,
I let that mean woman make me out a fool
She took all my money
Wrecked my new car
Now she's with one of my good time buddies
Drinkin' in some cross town bar

Sometimes I feel
Sometimes I feel
Oh like I've been tied
To the whipping post
Well tied to the whipping post
Oh tied to the whipping post
Good lord I feel like I'm dyin'

My friends tell me
That I've been such a fool
And I have to stand there and take it baby
All for lovin' you
Well I drown myself in sorrow
As I look at what you've done
But nothin' seems to change
The bad times stay the same
And I, oh I can't run

Sometimes I feel, mmmm
Sometimes I feel
Like I've been tied
To the whipping post
Oh tied to the whipping post
Oh tied to the whipping post
Good lord I feel like I'm dyin'
Oh good lord I feel like I'm dyin'

Sometimes I feel
Lord sometimes I feel
Oh like I've been tied
To the whipping post
Oh tied to the whipping post
Oh no tied to the whipping post
Good lord I feel like I'm dyin'
Oh good lord I feel like I'm dyin'
