Lyrics

It serves you right to suffer
It serves you right to be alone
It serves you right to suffer
It serves you right to be alone

Because you're still livin the day done packed and gone

Everytime you see a woman
She makes you think of yours
Everytime you see a woman
She makes you think of yours

And that's why, thats why, thats why
You can't keep from crying

Your doctor put you on
Milk, cream, and alcohol
Your doctor put you on
Milk, cream, and alcohol

He told you that's why
you can't sleep at night
You're nerve is so bad, yeah

Every time you see a woman
She make you think of yours
Every time you see a woman
She make you think of yours

She treated you so bad
You just couldn't keep from crying
Your life will never be the same

You're still living in a day done packed and gone
And memories

You cant live on
In that way
In the past
Them days is gone
