Del Reeves — I've Got A Tiger By The Tail lyrics

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
I'm losin' weight and turnin' kinda 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
Now the pace we're livin' takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've got a tiger by the tail...
[ guitar ]
Well every night you drag me where the bright lights're found
There ain't no way to slow you down
I'm as about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've got a tiger by the tail...
Yeah it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail
