I shoulda quit you, a long time ago,
I shoulda quit you, baby, a long time ago,
I shoulda quit you pretty baby, and went on to Mexico.

If I had'a followed, my right mind,
If I had'a followed, my right mind,
I'da been on the border, my second time.

If I had'a went on, when my best friend come at me,
If I had'a went on, when my best friend come at me,
Lord, I wouldn't be here tonight, down on the killin' floor.

If I had'a went on, when my friend come at me,
If I had'a went on, when my best friend come at me,
I wouldn't be here tonight, down on the killin' floor.

God knows, I shoulda went on,
God knows, I shoulda went on,
And I wouldn't be here tonight, down on the killin' floor.

ESQUIVEL, / ADAMS, JIM / HARRINGTON, DOUG
