She Tried

This song is by Bubba Sparxxx, features Ryan Tedder and appears on the album Deliverance (2003).

Uh yeah
Good Lord
God have mercy on my soul

I love her, but ya never would know
There by the way I just let my girl go
Wit tears in her eyes
From the year and the lies
She backed on up and disappeared out the drive
Wait, hey, what can I say?
All we had means nothin' today
I did my thang and she did hers
But my crimes are a wee bit worse
And now I'm sittin' here all alone wit my gift
Just me and the dogs, & the home that we built
It was Andy's & hers even though Bubba bought it
But Bubba wouldn't leave just like her motha' called it
From the pink, on into the blue flames
God forgive me for causin' you pain
All it was ain't no more
'Cause my baby's gone and when it rains, it pours

She tried to tell me
I needed to be strong
I wasn't listenin'
And now my baby's gone

1 for the pleasure, 2 for the sin
3 for the family, we coulda been
Had I not been so concerned
With this life no spoken words
Couldn't begin to undo what's done
Deep within I know that you must run
Far away from the thought of my smile
And the broken dream of us walkin' that aisle
I first saw Betty and my nanny right charred
The press were the best and her pannies... My Lord
A fly country-girl just workin' them "Gets"
She's my queen, is a virgin I guess
But I ain't never ask & I ain't never tell
But Betty had the cash at the time I went to jail
And how did I reward her loyalty?
Let her walk in 2 see the joy on me

She tried to tell me
I needed to be strong
I wasn't listenin'
And now my baby's gone

It's been 6 months and still no word
I try 2 carry on like it still don't hurt
Hoes comin' round but I still won't flirt
Drankin' is worse, & the pills don't work
Last I heard, she was in Birmingham
Livin' wit, a good hard workin' man
And lookin' back on it, that's exactly what she wanted
Not a rebel, but a passion for tha moment
I live for the fiddle & a kick in the snare
I take my love & I stick it in there
Moved it gently and made this song
All because, my baby's gone

She tried to tell me
I needed to be strong
I wasn't listenin'
And now my baby's gone
