I got friends who are in prison
That I've often said.
I'm gonna tell ya something
Friends who are dead.
CHORUS

That's just the way it's supposed to be.
You know these things that happen,
Don't ya know it coulda been me.
And I can't help but wonder,

I had a good girl,
Her kisses sweeter than wine.
And I had always hoped
That someday I'd make her mine.

CHORUS
But she ran off and married,
That's just the way it's supposed to be.
And I can't help but wonder,

Well the junkie cops of First Street,
Don't ya know it coulda been me.
Sticks a needle in his arm.
No, he never meant to do
Anyone no harm.
CHORUS

That's just the way it's supposed to be.
But he's buried six feet deep,
And I can't help but wonder,

I had me a good girl,
Don't ya know it coulda been me.
That someday I'd make her mine
Her kisses sweeter than wine.
And I had always hoped
