Lyrics

Mr. Nice Guy Blues

Verse 1

I want you to know as I set here, guitar on my knee

I want to tell you my sad story, but I don’t want no sympathy

If you don’t want to hear my story, it’s quite all right with me

I’ll sing it to myself; I’ve done it plenty times for free

 

Chorus

But there’s a thousand women in a crowded world

I don’t wanna be burnt by one small girl

And I do not care if I love her so,

If she calls me back honey I won’t go

 

Verse 2

People talk about the way she walk, but I doubt any one knows

What makes a girl a virgin, is not ribbons and bows

She smiled at me so innocently so I treated her a certain way

Low and behold everybody she know was just handling her like clay

 

Chorus

But there’s a thousand women in a crowded world

I don’t wanna be burnt by one small girl

And I do not care if I love her so,

 If she calls me back honey I won’t go

 

Verse 3

I didn’t know nothing ‘bout nothing, I was happy holding her hand

Then she left me ‘cause I was boring, now I understand

Those of you who paid your dues will know what I’ve been through

Those of you who don’t, I envy you
