  • I met him in Seattle, he was gettin' down on a bottle
    Telling lies in the Blue Moon Bar
    His face was hard and travelled, and as the wine unravelled
    I saw a man who could laugh about his scars

    He said, I got shanghaied in Vegas by a painted woman
    I got hog-tied by a hustler in Ohio
    I got derailed by a dancer down in Dallas
    Oh Lord, he said, women gonna be the death of me but what a way to go

    He said a girl named Nancy, once tickled his fancy
    And backed it up with a fifty dollar smile
    He laughed when he remembered, the pain of sweet surrender
    But heartaches never seemed to cramp his style

    He said, I got tongue-tied by a teacher in Tallahassee
    I got french-fried by a waitress in Idaho
    I got way-laid by a widow in Wyoming
    Oh Lord, he said, women gonna be the death of me but what a way to go

    He said, I got shanghaied in Vegas by a painted woman
    I got hog-tied by a hustler in Ohio
    I got derailed by a dancer down in Dallas
    Oh Lord, he said, women gonna be the death of me but what a way to go
