When you were mine
I gave you all of my money
Time after time
You done me wrong
Just like a train
Let all my friends come over and eat
You were so strange
You didn't have the decency to change the sheets
Oh when you were mine
I use to let you wear all my clothes
You were so fine
Maybe that's the reason that it hurt me so

I know, that you're goin' with another guy
I don't care, 'cause I love you baby that's no lie
