The Black Keys – The Desperate Man lyrics

See her walkin with a fella
Two of them so nice and mellow
Hey hey hey hey hey
My heart is broken, open wide
Feel so down, deep inside
Hey hey hey hey hey

Summer slipped by and still it's fall
Wonder what she done me for
Hey hey hey hey hey
I'm too far down the deepest ditch
To far gone to ever switch
Hey hey hey hey hey

Drivin on now without a care
Hope to catch you there
Hey hey hey hey hey
Don't forsake a desperate man
Hop you know that's what I am
Hey hey hey hey hey
