Holding The Bag    (1979)

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember out in Austin that time that we got tight?
You told that ole boy that I wanted to fight
Now, Moe, you know I really thought a that you could win
And I didn't see no sense in me a steppin' in

You almost got me killed when you started to brag
And that's when you ran off and left me holding the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two?
That old ugly one for me and the pretty one for you
Well, Joe, I bought the gas and it was my car
And I got stuck for all the beer at the bar
Yeah, you were up front a playin' lover's tag
While I was in the back seat just a holdin' the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember when I needed your alibi?
My wife called you up and you didn't lie
Now that's not as bad as when you had me to drive
And I ended up with that DUI
Now after all we've done, it's a wonder we're friends
But old Pal you know we'd do it again

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?
