Waylon Jennings – I've Got A Tiger By The Tail lyrics

(Harlan Howard - Buck Owens)

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
I'm losing weight and turning mighty pale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

Well, every night you drag me where the bright lights're found
There ain't no way to slowin' you down
I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
I'm losing weight and turning mighty pale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

--- Instrumental ---

I thought the day I met you you were meek as a lamb
Just the kind to fit my dreams and plans
Now the pace we've been living takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
I'm losing weight and turning mighty pale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail...
