Lyrics

© 2005 Jeffrey L. Howard and Christy D. Howard

Well wait a minute baby, what you trying to say
You didn't really love me, you didn't plan to stay
Now I'm on my way, heavy loaded with an evil frown
I'm on my way, to the bad side of town

I didn't really love you, I didn't plan to stay
You didn't give me nothing, but your low-down dirty ways
Now I'm on my way, heavy loaded with an evil frown
I'm on my way, to the bad side of town

guitar solo

Well let me tell you baby, about my other man
He gives me so much lovin, any time he can
Now I'm on my way, liquored-up and loaded down
I'm on my way, to the bad side of town

piano solo

Well baby if you're thinkin, I'm comin home to play
We'd still be together, if you hadn't gone astray
Now I'm on my way, heavy loaded with an evil frown
I'm on my way, to the bad side of town

Well wait a minute baby, what you trying to say
You didn't really love me, you didn't plan to stay
Now I'm on my way, heavy loaded with an evil frown
I'm on my way, to the bad side of town
I'm on my way, to the bad side of town
I said I'm on my way, to the bad side of town

{end}
