They come to town when the war is over
Dirty boots in the middle of the night
Trollin' the bars hitting on the soldiers
Boys give it up without a fight
They say "Hey boy how about your place?
I know you really want to take me home"
Drop the bags off on the bedroom floor
They make love with the lights on saying

I'm a carpetbagger baby
I'm coming to your town
I'm gonna treat you kind
I'm gonna rob you blind
I'll smile all the time

whoa yeah x4

Sally could've had any one of the boys
But she couldn't love no one she could not control
Friend of mine and her got married
I don't hear too much from him anymore
Last I heard he had a rope round his neck
Draggin' around the grocery store
Carrying her bags pushin' down the ice
and I ain't got no home in this world anymore

I'm a carpetbagger baby
I'm coming to your town
I'm gonna treat you kind
I'm gonna rob you blind
I'll smile all the time

Oh yeah x4

They come to town when the party's over
Books been written and true's been tried
They'll take it all if the doors left open
Steal the nose right from under your eyes

I'm a carpetbagger baby
I'm coming to your town
I'm gonna treat you kind
I'm gonna rob you blind
I'll smile all the time

Oh yeah x4
