You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' purty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag.

Remember out in Austin that time that we got tight
You told that ole boy that I wanted to fight
Now Moe you know I really thought a that you could win
And I didn't see no sense in me a steppin' in
You almost got me killed when you started to brag
And that's when you ran off and left me holding the bag.

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' purty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag.

Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two
The ole ugly one for me and the purty one for you
Well Joe I bought the gas and it was my car
And I got stuck for all the beer at the bar
Yeah you were up front a playin' lover's tag
While I was in the back seat just a holdin' the bag.

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' purty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag.

Remember when I needed your alibi
My wife called you up and you didn't lie
Now that's not as bad as when you had me to drive
And I ended up with that DWI
Now after all we've done it's a wonder we're friends
But ole Pal you know we'd do it again.

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' purty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag.

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' purty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag...
