Your Man

words/music (c) matt ralph 2007

Me,

I was down on my luck babe,

I walked forty days in two days,

Shed everything from my suitcase,

Tried standing in front of a roadtrain,

Just to try to make it back to you,

Well Idon’t know what I was thinking,

But the way I left you was stinking,

I was too cuaght up with my drinking,

And if you hadn’t come looking for me that night,

It sure would have been the end,

I gotta make it up to you babe,

Cause you saved my life,

I was caught up in the cross fire hunny,

No luck a head and the back way a stale mate,

You came to me babe,

I was a dead man,

there was no fore warning but you came to me babe,

I said my Amens,

You had the ground covered one way or another babe,

Me I was happy as I could be,

Working long hours on the weekend,

Just trying to get on my feet again,

But the money I saved well I owed from past days,

I just couldn’t get ahead,

And too many times I’ve been leaving,

I make my way to the doorway,

I tell you I love you always,

But I get my feet on the cold dark street,

And I’m knocking on you door again,

I gotta make it up to you babe,

Cause you saved my life,

I was caught up in the cross fire hunny,

No luck a head and the back way a stale mate,

You came to me babe,

I was a dead man,

there was no fore warning but you came to me babe,

I said my Amens,

You had the ground covered one way or another babe,

Mumma creator had a strange plan for me,

Knock me down just to show it to me,

I’m the man for you babe,

I was out cold like a first round knock down,

Ain’t no friends in this whole God Damn town,

But you came to me babe,

I was a dead man,

there was no fore warning but you came to me babe,

I said my Amens,

You had the ground covered one way or another babe,

You saved my life,

You saved my life
