John Mellencamp – Sad Lady lyrics

Written by John Mellencamp and George Green

Oh Sad Lady do you curse your name
And how many times have you been ashamed
Crazy Lady letting your emotions show
It's hard being a woman knowing what you know

Oh Sad Lady were you born in vain
Nothing to live for and no one to blame
Ain't no use in screaming or pulling on your hair
Crazy Lady dancing with a chair

(1st bridge)

Oh oh if you should get to know
Sad Lady
Say maybe

Oh Sad Lady won't you dry your eyes
You go on living wishing you could die
'cause dying's not bad when living's not so good
Crazy Lady so misunderstood

(repeat 1st bridge)

(2nd bridge)
Tell me what you're thinking
As you lace up white shoes
Tell me Sad Lady
