Lyrics
When I get feelin', hurtin' and reelin'
It's so sad, I go to bed
I stare at the ceiling, I dream about dreamin'
Woke up this morning, shaking my head

I pick up the paper, I put down the paper
Turn on the TV, I get confused
People on this side say the people on that side
They lyin', say they lyin', everybody's confused

What can you do, what can you do
When you can't trust anybody
To tell you the truth
Can't trust 'em can't trust 'em
What to do, what to do now
Only the Lord knows and He ain't you

I talk to my teacher, I talk to my deacon
Talk to my sister, talk to my friends
Hit by the wheelin', hit by the dealin'
Hit by the feelin', it's outta my hands

What can you do, what can you do
When you can't trust anybody
To tell you the truth
Can't trust 'em, can't trust 'em
What to do, what to do, y'all
Only the Lord knows and He ain't you

What can you do, what can you do
When you can't trust anybody
To tell you the truth
Can't trust 'em, can't trust 'em
What to do, what to do now
Only the Lord knows and He ain't you

I pick up the paper, I put down the paper
Turn on the TV, I get confused
People on this side say the people on that side
They lyin', say they lyin', everybody's confused

What can you do, what can you do
When you can't trust anybody
To tell you the truth
Can't trust 'em, can't trust 'em
What to do, what to do now
Only the Lord knows, He ain't you
Only the Lord knows and He ain't you
