Dottie West -. You Pick Me Up And Put Me Down lyrics


You were mine for just a while

Now you're putting on the style

And you've never once looked back to your home across the track

You're the gossip of the town

But my heart can still be found

Where you tossed it on the ground

Pick me up on your way down


Pick me up on your way down

When you're blue and all alone

When their glamour starts to bore you

Come on back where you belong

You may be their pride and joy

But they'll find another toy

Then they'll take away your crown

Pick me up on your way down


They have changed your attitude made you haughty and so rude

Your new friends can take the blame

Underneath you're still the same

When you've learned these things are true

I'll be waiting here for you

As you tumble to the ground

Pick me up on your way down

Pick me up on your way down...
