(featured in the film Midnight Cowboy)
Written by Warren Zevon, c. 1970 United Artists, c. 1996 EMI Capital Music Special Markets

It wasn't the queen of diamonds that I drew first
Instead I got the ace of spades reversed
She quit me
She up and quit me, man--yeah
She quit me
She up and she quit me

It wasn't because I didn't treat her right--no
When dawn had drawn the curtains of the night
She quit me
She up and she quit me, man
She quit me
She up and quit me--yeah

It wasn't because I didn't treat her kind
I wonder who put leaving on her mind
She quit me
She up and she quit me, man
She quit me
She up and quit me--yeah

It wasn't because I couldn't satisfy--no
Now where'd she get the nerve to say goodbye
Oh, she quit me
She up and quit me, man--oh, yeah
She quit me
She up and quit me--yeah
