Slim Dusty – The Biggest Disappointment lyrics

They had my future wrapped up in a parcel
And no one even thought of asking me
The day I turned fifteen I caught the mail train
To find what else might be in life for me
I rode on trucks and trains and lived on nothin'
Served me right for wanting to be free
Ah well that's the way society looked at it
But it didn't seem to be that way to me
And the biggest disappointment in the family was me
The only twisted branch upon our good old family tree
I just couldn't be the person they expected me to be
And the biggest disappointment in the world wa-as me
I lot more dinner times than there were dinners
I learned a lot that hurt me at the time
Then this quiet country boy went home a different man
With a memory of distance on my mind
But I always spoke too loud and laughed too often
Maybe drank to many glasses down
And perhaps my clothes were older than I realised
A relief to all concerned when I left town
And the biggest disappointment in the family was me
The only twisted branch upon our good old family tree
I just couldn't be the person they expected me to be
And the biggest disappointment in the world wa-as me
And the biggest disappointment in the family was me
The only twisted branch upon our good old family tree
I just couldn't be the person they expected me to be
And the biggest disappointment in the world wa-as me
