Alabama – Can't Keep A Good Man Down lyrics

I thought it was forever
I thought it would last
I gotta try to make it a page of my past
You didn't even say goodbye when you slammed that door

Now I'm lying here alone in what once was our bed
Trying to forget all the cruel words you said
The radio is playing what once was our favorite song

Enough is enough I won't take anymore
I'm picking myself up off the floor
'cuz you can't keep a good man down

I'm gonna dress up in the finest clothes that I own
And take it to the streets, I won't be lonely for long
I'm gonna put on my best moves on every single woman I see

You thought you could break me
Add me to your list, notch me on your gun
Let me tell you this, I got news for you baby
I don't break that easily

'cuz you can't keep a good man down

I'll be out there on the scene hanging with my friends
This world's gonna see me smiling again
I'm taking some time to erase you from my memory

Don't write me any letters, don't call me on the phone
Don't knock on my door cuz to you I'm not at home
I know there's a woman out there for a man like me
