Merle Haggard – Don't You Ever Get Tired (of Hurtin' Me) lyrics

You make my eyes run over all the time
You're happy when I'm out, out of my mind
You won't love me but you won't let me be
Don't you ever get tired of hurtin' me

Someone must have hurt you long ago
But why take revenge on me when I love you so
Surely there's another way for you to be
Don't you ever get tired of hurtin' me

You must think I look bad with a smile
For you haven't let me wear one in such a long, long while
Why do I keep hanging on?
Don't you ever get tired of hurtin' me
Still you never get tired of hurtin' me
