You told me goodbye
How was I to know
You didn't mean goodbye
You meant please don't let me go?

I was having a high time
Living the good life, well I know

The wheels are muddy
Got a ton of hay
Now listen here, baby
'Cause I mean what I say

I'm having a hard time
Living the good life, well I know

I was losing time, I had nothing to do
No one to fight I came to you
Wheels broke down, the leader won't draw
The line is busted, the last one I saw

Tomorrow come trouble
Tomorrow come pain
Now don't think too hard, baby
'Cause you know what I'm saying

I could show you a high time
Living the good life, don't be that way

Nothing's for certain
It could always go wrong
Come in when it's raining
Go on out when it's gone

We could have us a high time
Living the good life, well I know

Songwriters
GARCIA, JEROME J. / HUNTER, ROBERT C.
