Told you baby one more time
Don't make me sit all alone and cry
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
I'm like a fish out of water
A cat in a tree

You don't even want to talk to me
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
He won't take me back when I come around

Says he's sorry then he pulls me out
I got a big chain around my neck
And I'm broken down like a train wreck
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
See I got a candle and it burns so bright

In my window every night
Well it's over I know but I can't let go
You don't like to see me standing around

Feel like I been shot and didn't fall down
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
He won't take me back when I come around

Says he's sorry then he pulls me out
I got a big chain around my neck
And I'm broken down like a train wreck
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go

Solo

Turn off trouble like you turn off a light

Went off and left me it just ain't right
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
Rounds every corner something I see

Bring me right back how it used to be
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
He won't take me back when I come around

Says he's sorry then he pulls me out
I got a big chain around my neck
And I'm broken down like a train wreck
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
He won't take me back when I come around

Says he's sorry then he pulls me out
I got a big chain around my neck
And I'm broken down like a train wreck
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go
Well it's over I know it but I can't let go

From Lucinda Williams "Car Wheels On A Gravel Road"
Mercury Records 1998
