Well, I packed up my suitcase
I took off down the road
When I got there she was
Layin' on the coolin' board
I packed up my suitcase
And I took off down the road
When I got there she was
A-layin' on the coolin' board

It looked like ten thousand people
Standin' 'round the buryin' ground
I didn't know I loved her
'Til they began to let her down
Looked like ten thousand
People standin' 'round the buryin' ground
I didn't know that I loved her
'Til they began to let her down


You know, it's so hard to love
Someone that don't love you
Ain't no satisfaction
Don't care what you do
So hard to love
Yeah, someone that don't love you
Don't look like satisfaction, and I don't care what you do
