You don't know, you don't know, you don't know my mind, doggone it
You don't know, you don't know my mind
And when you see me laughing, laughing just to keep from crying

Yes, I feed my baby on a sweet jelly roll
Tucked my shoes on my feet, left me out in the cold
You don't know, you don't know my mind
And when you see me laughing, laughing just to keep from crying

Honey, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know my mind, doggone it
You don't know, you don't know my mind
And when you see me laughing, I'm laughing just to keep from crying

Yes, I asked my baby, could she stand to see me cry
Yes, yes, Daddy, I could stand to see you die
You don't know, you don't know my mind
And when you see me laughing, laughing just to keep from crying

Well, as Winter, when the time was rough
I was out in the coal mine, strutting my stuff
You don't know, you don't know my mind
And when you see me laughing, laughing just to keep from crying

Honey, you don't know, you don't know, you don't know my mind, hey, baby
You don't know, you don't know my mind
And when you see me laughing, I'm laughing just to keep from crying
