It serve you right to suffer
Serve you right to be alone
Serve you right to suffer
Serve you right to be alone
Because you're still livin'
In days done past and gone
Everytime you see a woman
She make you think of yours 
Yeah, everytime you see a woman
She make you think of yours
And that's why, that's why, that's why
You can't keep from cryin'
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 
From nerves, so bad
Yeah.
(guitar & instrumental)
Everytime you see a woman
She makes you think of yours
Everytime you see a woman
She make you think of your own
She treated you so bad
You just couldn't keep from cryin'
Umm, mmm, mmm
Your life never be the same
Umm, umm, mmm
You're still livin' in the days
Done gone past and gone
And memories
Yeah-yeah 
You can't live on
In that way
In the past
Them days
Is gone
Gone
