Harlan Howard — I've Got A Tiger By The Tail lyrics

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
And I won't be much when you get through with me
I'm losing weight and turning mighty pale and it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/harlan-howard-ive-got-a-tiger-by-the-tail-lyrics.html ]
Now I've 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 the sails
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail
I've got a tiger by the tail...
[ guitar ]
Now every night you drag me where the bright lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down
And I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail
I've got a tiger by the tail...
It looks like I've got a tiger by the tail
