Earl Thomas Conley – I Can’t Win For Losin’ You Lyrics

Hey, how’ve you been? Good to see you again
Gee, it’s been a long time
How’s that new man, Mom and Dad
Since I told you goodbye?
Now I’m still the same, still raisin’ Cain
Nobody’s worried ’bout me
I come and& I go, just as I please
Since I set myself free

But I can’t win for losin’ you
I just can’t get over you
Bein’ footloose and fancy free
Ain’t all it’s cracked up to be
And the grass ain’t no greener
Here on the other side
I might win a heart or two
But I can’t win for losin’ you

Well I’m on my way, there’s so much to say
Lord knows that I’ve had my time
Girl, you can bet I’ll never forget
When you used to be mine

But I can’t win for losin’ you
I just can’t get over you
Bein’ footloose and fancy free
Ain’t all it’s cracked up to be
And the grass ain’t no greener
Here on the other side
I might win a heart or two
But I can’t win for losin’ you
