why me Lord?
what have i ever done
to deserve even one
of the love's that i've known?
the love that's been shown
to me?
i just can't see,
why me?

i've rocked & i've rolled.
i've strolled
thru life.
thru more than one wife.
i've cut like a knife.
been nuthin' but strife.
i've thunk 'till i was drunk.
i've drunk 'till i stunk.
i've run away from responsibilities
never lived up to my abilities.
i've prodded & i've poked.
i've smoked & i've toked.
my souldalways broke.
a kind word i seldom spoke.

guess i'll never understand
how a man
like me
could ever see,
could ever have known
the love i've been shown.

why me, Lord?
what did i ever do?




(with respect to Kris Kristofferson)
