Hard Luck Story Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Sometimes I think I'm going crazy
Staring at the same four walls
Waiting for the working day to end

Then I get home so wasted, worn out
I curse at you and tell you
How I've done the work of ten to fifteen men

How I've struggled for my money
Sweated blood to get us by, yeah
Well, I'm tired of it, honey
Think I'm gonna have to leave here for a while

All you hear are hard luck stories
And the ways I look at life
And the way I think the world treats me
And the way I treat my wife

I never seem to look at you
And see that somewhere underneath
A pair of tired eyes are crying out

Well, you know I work hard all day long
Let me kiss you once with meaning
Just to kill this nagging doubt

Well, you don't deny I do you proud
And you expect me to be tired
You say there's no future in our lives
While I persist I'm putting out the fire

All you hear are hard luck stories
Just a few well chosen words
'Cause you're still the woman of a working man
You've got the heart of a working girl

All you hear are hard luck stories
And the ways I look at life
And the way I think the world treats me
And the way I treat my wife

All you hear are hard luck stories
And the ways I look at life
And the way I think the world treats me
And the way I treat my wife
