Gram Parsons

Sometimes I get up sad when people treat me bad

I don't have time to think and so I get real mad

I pull my hair and find somewhere that I can be alone

But when I do I think of you and then I hurry home


Where I've got chores to keep me busy

A clock to keep my time

A pretty girl to love me

With the same last name as mine

And when the flowers wilt

A big old quilt to keep us warm

I've got the sun to see your blue eyes

And tonight you're in my arms

Somtimes I get on wild when fancy cars drive fast

Money don't get me down but I can't make it last

I bite my nails and if that fails I go get myself stoned

But when I do I think of you and head myself back home


Repeat second verse and chorus
