Bill Anderson — My Life lyrics

My Life
© '69 Stallion Music
You don't understand the pattern of my life because my life has got no pattern
You don't see and you can't feel the wind
That's blowing at my back and saying move boy
You think this burning fever in my heart is just a folly
And I'm throwin' away my happiness by leaving you
Chorus:
Well it's my life throw it away if I want to
I've tried my best to plant my feet and stay with you but all I feel is roots grow
And what man wants a woman who won't satisfy his heart and soothe his ego
I sleep all day and run all night and you tell me that that ain't right
That ain't what the husbands of your friends do
But it's my life throw it away if I want to
You try to make me think my nonconforming life has colored me some evil shade
You delight and filling up my mind with a little bits of guilt you think I oughta feel
Well I'm tired of feeling guilty and I'm tired of having nothing
And I'm throwin' away this life you've had me shackled to

Repeat chorus
