I recall once upon a time
Livin' was so easy and I felt so fine

But my, my, my right before my very eyes
Satan came with fire to burn me
Wouldn't listen when they warned me

A dagger in my back, she's calling me honey
Wouldn't stand back, for neither love nor money, oh yeah

Thirty minutes after my ship set sail
She put up a sign and my house began to wail

Why, why, why I couldn't see it in my little girl's eyes?
She had such a way to fool me, Lord a way to fool me

And I would ask the woman, "Can you find it in yourself
To please stand back? You ain't gonna rule me" Oh yeah

Just when all began to fade
I reached out and threw the Ace of Spades
Put her on a train to the Everglades

Now that it's all over and gone
Somehow I just don't feel so all alone

But, lie, lie, lie it seemed like such a waste of time
She did not ever seem to know me
Now it's much too late to show me

But, if I ever see that woman walkin' down the street
I'll just stand back and try to move away slowly, oh yeah
