Even if I let this settle
It'll lead to a little fight
Even when I get to meddlin'
I need to remain polite

I could cut across this field
But it hits pretty close to home
Maybe, if I jiggle it a little
It'll open up on it's own

Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown

Never has a stranger had a better
Taste of another town
Just time for a cowboy breakfast
That's a leak and a look around

Looks like the land of plenty
There will be plenty there to do
That might have been funny at twenty
But I just turned thirty two

Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown

Let down your guard
Moving forward
Finally, four words
What a let down, what a letdown

Even if I let this settle
It'll lead to a little fight
Even when I get to meddlin'
I need to remember to remain polite

I could cut across this field
But it hits pretty close to home
Maybe, if I jiggle it a little
It'll open up on it's own

Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown

What a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown
Oh well, what a letdown
What a letdown
