I've never been to China town never seen Frisco Bay
Ain't been to Dallas in the spring ain't got no pictures in my mind
I've spend the best years of my life here with you I've just been wasting my time
[ dobro ]
I've never owned a suit of clothes just barely could afford your ring
We got married awfully young just to live took every dime
It hurts to think that after all I've done for you I've just been wasting my time
[ dobro ]
No telling what I might have been had your love not tied me down
You don't say you want to leave I know you do for I'm not blind
Any fool can see that you don't love me I've just been wasting my time
[ dobro ]
I've done by you as best I could there's nothing else that I can do
Don't stay around because of me don't want you messin' up my mind
The best of me wasn't good enough for you I've just been wasting my time
