She's a sad, sad girl
A sad, sad, girl
She don't try to fight it
Won't try to hide it
A sad, sad, girl

Was it always so?
Did her heart start that low?
Did she always believe
Love always deceives?
Was it always so?

No matter what you do
She'll pay no mind to you
To make her know you care
Is futile as a prayer

She's a mining town
After the mine's shut down
Coal turned to diamonds
She won't let you find them
She's a mining town

Once in a long, long while
She might attempt a smile
But it works in reverse
She starts to hurt even worse

Sad, sad, girl
In a sad, sad, world
She won't try to fight it
Won't try to hide it
A sad, sad, girl
