First she drove me down 
Tossed me round 
Slandered my name all over town 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
She makes true love more like misery 

I'm walkin' hunched 
I get drunk a bunch 
Sucker up and take a punch 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
And I think I've acted reasonably 
But I miss her
Last time I kissed her

She sure tasted sweet 
Like spoiled meat 
And other's breath, you're so discreet 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
Oh no, no, no, no, no 

She can powder her nose 
'Til the bars are closed 
Waitin' in the parking lot, where'd she go 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
Mama tell me how could this be 

But I miss her 
All that I wish from her

Is the time of day 
Don't go out of your way 
Just leave me with a stack of them bills to pay 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
She's supposed to have the courtesy 

To shut the door 
When she's been playin' a whore 
Pick his f***in' rags up off the floor 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
And I only wish that she could see

That I miss her

But I miss her
All I have is a picture of her 

Taken years ago 
I was a kid you know 
We were leaned up against that Eldorado 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
She robbed me of my liberty 

Tonight I drove her out of town 
Then I pushed her down 
And I shot her brains onto the cold clay ground 
My good gal ain't no good to me 
Not even in my memory 

But I miss her
