BROKE DOWN
Well, i had me a job
But it didn't pay
I worked and slaved my life away
And i ain't got nothin'
To this very day

And i'm broke down so long now
Yes, i'm broke down for so long now
Yes, i'm so tired of livin'
Just wanna lay my body in the ground

Well, i had me a woman
On the edge of town
She lived with a devil man, he put her down
She cried me a river
Well, i damn near drown

I said "Now, woman . . . girl can't you see?"
"You,ve got to get away, child, runaway with me!"
But her man done shot her
Set her soul free

Now i'm broke down so long now
I been broke down for so long now
Yes, i'm so tired of livin'
Just wanna lay my body in the ground

Yes, i'm so tired of livin'
I don't wanna go on livin'
Yes, i'm so tired of livin'
Just wanna lay my body in the ground

I SHOULD HAVE LIED
I was a fool to believe
You couldn't break my heart
You were a breath of fresh air for me to breathe
But, now you're tearin' me apart

Yes, you were something to behold
I couldn't believe my eyes
You left me stranded out in the cold
I should have been a bit more wise

I should have lied to you
I should have lied to you
Should not have told you the truth
Shoulda watched your every move
You were comin' on strong
I couldn't lead you on
But, I should have lied to you

I saw the twinkle in your eyes
You had me in your sights
If I had just been a bit more sly
You could've been mine that night

It's rather simple to understand
Somethin' complicated as this
You've got me eatin' from the palm of your hand
You should have never given me that kiss
And I should have lied to you

I praised Jesus for the day you were born
Swore to the Devil I'd get you yet
My life without you is shattered and torn
Now I curse the very day we met

BREAK IT TO MY BABY
I've seen you standin' there
I've seen you with your smile
I can tell just by your stare
That you're hungry for me, child

You make me wanna sing
Now there's only one thing I gotta do
I better break it to my baby
I'm in love with you

She ain't like no one else
She's got what it takes
Anytime I'm by myself
No, there's no mistake

She makes me wanna sing
Now there's only one thing I gotta do
I better break it to my baby
I'm in love with you

You make me wanna scream
You make me wanna shout
The more and more it seems
Lord, I can't hold out

You make me wanna sing
Now there's only one thing I gotta do
I better break it to my baby
I'm in love with you

You know I like the clothes she wears
I don't even know her name
I tell you I don't care
‘Cause I love her just the same

She makes me wanna sing
Now there's only one thing I gotta do
I better break it to my baby
I'm in love with you

And though we haven't met
Girl, I can't forget I had a dream
I don't know how to deal with it
‘Cause I don't know if you're real
And how am I supposed to feel you out
From a page in some magazine?
