Moe Bandy And Joe Stampley - Holding The Bag  Lyrics

 

You always leave me holding the bag

Don't you know it's gettin' purty 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' purty 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

The ole ugly one for me and the purty 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' purty 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 DWI

Now after all we've done it's a wonder we're friends

But ole Pal you know we'd do it again.

 

You always leave me holding the bag

Don't you know it's gettin' purty 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' purty heavy to drag

You think it's funny but it ain't no gag

How come you always leave me holding the bag...
