Nils Lofgren – Mud In Your Eye lyrics

You used to leave your scent
On his whiskey soaked collar
You both would paint the town
Drink up his very last dollar

And then you loved him for fun
And rode away when it was done
Now he’s confused and I know why
Ain’t that mud in your eye?

Ain’t like rain?
Remember lively little Richard
But his men were painting town
You were in need of attention

So he thought he’d take you on down
And there you first saw me
And realized you were no longer free
'Cause true love good girls can’t deny
It comes and goes like mud in you’re eye

Sometimes a victim can run
But not when both have been ‘von
And I ain’t no stranger
I built you up to shoot you down

Once you could thrill me
Now I’m the jury
And you’ll be a cinch to convict
Your boy’s gonna make the great escape

While you're laid bare on the ground
This vengeance had to and in crime
I built you up and shoot you down
You know I’m not usually that kind

But you didn’t know he was a brother of mine
But I’ll just laugh if you cry
Now ain’t that mud in your eye
