Buck Owens — I've Got A Tiger By The Tail lyrics

[Chorus:]
I've got a tiger by the tail
It's plain to see
I won't be much
When you get through with me
Well, I'm losing weight
And turning mighty pale
Looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

Well, I thought the day I met you
You were meek as a lamb
Just the kind to fit
My dreams and plans

But now, the pace we're living
Takes the wind from my sail
And it looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

[Repeat chorus]

Well, every night you drag me
Where the bright lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down

I'm about as helpless
As a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got
A tiger by the tail

[Repeat chorus]
