I'll Be Damned

from Lucky One by Alex McMurray



Funny--I couldn't find a song out there with this title. I'm surprised that American Country Music hadn't mined this trope as of yet. A softball down the middle. And even if you don't like it, it gets out of the way fast.


get me outta this place i don’t mind saying
everybody seems a little too cool
it’s just fine if you don’t mind playin the fool
ain’t no signal and there ain’t no sign
and i’m tired of being last in line
i be damned
and baby that’ll be just fine

push me in a wheelbarrow sit me on a mule
put me on a broke down train
get me outta here quick
cuz everybody going insane
c’mon lock the door let’s go see where
everybody likes it just like me
i be damned
just like my momma said to me

(i be damned) everybody gonna jump off the roof
(i be damned) i’ll be honest i can’t stand the truth
come on over baby we swimming in a lake of fire
test your knowledge taste the fruit
get ya fitted for a creosote boot
& get down below where folks get a little bit higher

(i be damned) we dancing in a meat house locker
(i be damned) my baby she’s a real shit talker
nothing wrong with raisin up a little hell
put on that dress paint your mouth
let’s go see what things are like down south
ill be damned and baby let’s go down the well
