Major Blues Submit Correct Lyrics

There's sometimes I don't believe in nothing
Sometimes I do
That's why it hurts to believe in you
Though I know that pain and sorrow
Ain't nothing new
It really hurts to be hurt by you

Lost my job to no one
Lost my baby to another man
That's what I get for going to 'Nam
Give my life to my country
Now they put me on the welfare line
No it won't be water but fire next time

Sometimes I want to go back to the city
Where I spent my youth
Where I had nothing and nothing to lose

Someday when this country needs a helping hand
And they want mine
I'll tell them, "Buddy just get in line"
And when my baby comes back crying
'Cause her lover ain't around no more
I'll kick that smart ass out the door

There's times I don't believe in nothing
Sometimes I do
That's why it hurts to believe in you
Though I know that pain and sorrow
Ain't nothing new
It really hurts to be hurt by you
It really hurts to be hurt by you
