Cryin' Shame

This song is by Lyle Lovett and appears on the album Lyle Lovett And His Large Band (1989).

You got you some legs, baby, that just won't quit
You got a pretty boy and he looks pretty hip
You got you one on the sly but you gave him the slip
And that's just a cryin' shame

'Cause you love the boy with the pretty green eyes
And you love the boy who says he's so clever and wise
And you love the boy who's always telling you lies
And that's just a cryin' shame

Sometimes it never quits raining
Sometimes that phone just won't ring
Sometimes I never miss nothing
And sometimes I miss anything

But you like 'em tall when it's raining
And you like 'em dark when you're feeling no pride
But you never felt anything that you wanted to hide
And that's just a cryin' shame

So he says, "You look lovely, my dear"
You say, "Thank you, I'm fine"
And you spend all his money
And you spend all his time
And you spend the night
Like you were spending a dime
And that's just a cryin' shame
