(Merle Haggard)

Well. not long ago I was a happy man
Money in my pockets and a ring on my hand
My money's all Gone and I'm feelin' low
Standin' on the corner of Skid Row/

My girl friend left me she don't want me no more
We had a great big fight just a night before
She said I got no class because she knows
I've been hangin' around on Skid Row/

Well, people walk by and they stop and stare
They giggle and they snicker at the clothes I wear
It's just another day like it always goes
When you're hangin' around on Skid Row.

--- Instrumental ---

I got an old John Beam with the pain more through
Got a great big hole in the bottom of my shoe
My wine's all gone and I need some more
Standin' on the corner of Skid Row.

Well, people walk by and they stop and stare
They giggle and they snicker at the clothes I wear
It's just another day like it always goes
When you're hangin' around on Skid Row...
This song is from the album "I'm a Lonesome Fugitive".
