​Price I Pay To Stay

This song is by Ed Bruce and appears on the album If I Could Just Go Home (1968).

There was a time I really thought it did some good
To get down on my knees to you and I would
But baby now that's all changed today's a brand new day
You ain't worth the price I had to stay

Just because you're the best looking woman that I've ever seen
Ain't reason enough to have to treat you like a queen
There's a harder lesson you need to learn and it might as well be today
Baby you ain't worth the price I had to stay

I'm tired of tryin' to turn the other cheek to you
And never knowin' which way to turn 'cause you've made up a brand new set of rules
Somewhere I picked up a little more pride than I had yesterday
Baby you ain't worth the price I had to stay

I'm tired of tryin' to turn...
Baby you ain't worth the price I had to stay
