That's the only way on earth I have for knowin' how you're doin'
When you left you said you call but you ain't yet
And I think I was better off when I was hungry
And fightin' off the wolfs from our front door
But I wrote this song and it came on strong and left you once too often
Now I think I was better off when I was hungry
[ harmonica ]
My guitar brought us here to Bonmat Texas
And I bought you everything your eyes could see
But the mansion couldn't hold you could nobody's arms to warm you
I guess I gave you everything but me
And I think I was better off...
