Good man, I'm a good man, food's on the table, working two jobs,
Waiting willing the neighbors check your name
I'm having fun, got no kids and I love the Lord, check your name
I'm a... never did time but maybe just once, check your name
And I puts it down, wanna see it twice, brother puts it down, check

How could you ever walk away, after all I've done for you
I feel like there's a knife in my back, babe
You might as well pull it all the way through

Good man, I'm a good man, food's on the table, working two jobs,
Waiting willing the neighbors check your name, good man
I'm having fun, got no kids and I love the Lord, check your name
I'm a... never did time but maybe just once, check your name
And I puts it down, wanna see it twice, brother puts it down, check

You watched them hand cuff me lady, and walk me to my room

I never been so humiliated, I don't think that I deserve it for you
Good man, I'm a good man, food's on the table, working two jobs,
Waiting willing the neighbors check your name, good man
I'm having fun, got no kids and I love the Lord, check your name
I'm a... never did time but maybe just once, check your name
And I puts it down, wanna see it twice, brother puts it down, check
I never been, I never been so much pain, never
My life is better, my love is pretty, so much better, now
Without you, I never had so... without you, whenever... inside
How could you... just... walk away
When the things go rough you quickly ran into... somebody say, I've been there
There's one thing I know so I'ma tell you that I'm a good man, back to you, a good man
Good man, good man, good man, good man
