Hank Thompson – Pick Me Up On Your Way Down lyrics

Pick me up on your way down
(Harlan Howard)
" © '56 Tree Publishing "
You were mine for just a while now you're puttin' on the style
And you've never once looked back to your home across the track
You're the gossip of the town but my heart can still be found
Where you tossed it on the ground pick me up on your way down
Pick me up on your way down when you're blue and all alone
When their glamour starts to bore you come on back where you belong
When you've learned these things are true I'll be waiting here for you
When you tumble to the ground pick me up on your way down
They have changed your attitude made you haughty and so rude
Your new friends can take the blame underneath you're still the same
You may be their pride and joy but they'll find another toy
When your new love can't be found pick me up on your way down
Pick me up on your way down...
