Woman, you can really believe it, I did everything a man could do.
Breaking my back just to make us a dime.
That won't mean a damn when no one wants to know you.
Woman, I know how you're feeling. I've seen the hurt upon your face.
How many time do you think that I've cried?
Knowing every day that your heart was getting broken,
Holdin' back your pride til you were nearly chokin'
Oh, let's get away, baby.
