Jerry Jeff Walker — Couldn't Do Nothin' Right lyrics

Gary P Nunn/Karen Brooks

The lamp is broken on the mantle
My mind is blown and I'm turning away
It's Gettin' more than I can handle
It's Gettin' more than I can say

CHORUS:
I couldn't stay here if I wanted
I couldn't stay here if I tried
You were always disappointed in me
Guess I could never do nothing right
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/jerry-jeff-walker-couldnt-do-nothin-right-lyrics.html ]
Well, I worked hard to make a living
To make that good life dream come true
But you wanted more than I was giving
I guess that was more than I could do

Chorus

You cut my heart like the cards on the table
It seemed like fun for you to keep playin' on
Well, I let you in as long as I was able
But now all your games have done been run

Chorus
