Ray Kennedy – What A Way To Go lyrics

I met him in Seattle, bellied up to a bottle
Tellng lies in the Blue Moon Bar
His face was hard and traveled and as the lines unraveled,
I saw a man who could laugh about his scars

Chorus
He said I got Shanghied in Vegas by a painted woman
I got hog-tied by a red-head in Ohio
I got derailed by a dancer down in Dallas
He said, women gonna be the death a me, but what a way to go

He said a girl named Nancy once tickled his fancy
And backed it up with a hundred dollar smile
He laughed about that Madam Rue, she was into Voodoo
A little weird but she always drove him wild

He said I got tongue-tied by a teacher in Tallahassee
I got french-fried by a waitress in Idaho
I got way-laid by a widow in Wyoming
He said, women gonna be the death a me, but what a way to go
Chorus

He said, women gonna be the death a me, but what a way to go
