Big Harlan Taylor

This song is by Roger Miller and appears on the album The 3rd Time Around (1965).

I once had a sweetheart the fairest of maidens
She outshined all others that I'd known by far
I had me a friend named Big Harlan Taylor Harlan had a rubber tied new shiny car
All the ways of the world and the wants of a woman
If I figured them all up it could take many years

By the wants of a woman she fell for Big Harlan
I tried but in vain for to take my own life
Suddenly I had lost all my will to keep living
She'd lost her desire to become my young wife
All the ways of the world...

Well I wanted revenge and we laid for Big Harlan
Then I started wondering what good would it do
If a rubber tied new shiny car's her ambition
And I just let her hat and Big Harlan too
All the ways of the world...
If I figured them all up it could take many years
