Lyrics

Living On The Edge Of Sin �© 2003 Jeffrey L. and Christy D. Howard

I've got a run-down car, and a beat-up pair of shoes
I've got 14 hungry kids, they're singing me the blues
I'm living, living mighty thin
Smokin' on my cig
Living on the edge of sin

Once I had a mansion, and a long black shiny car
I bet my last dollar, I pushed my luck too far
I'm living, living mighty thin
Smokin' on my cig
Living on the edge of sin

My evil eye is working, and I'm turning up the heat
I got so much love cookin', I'm burning up the street
I'm living, living mighty thin
Smokin' on my cig
Living on the edge of sin

I'm a very bad girl, and you don't know where I've been
I'm lively on my feet, and I just might show some skin
I'm living, living mighty thin
Smokin' on my cig
Living on the edge of sin

I've got a man upstairs, and a man out in my car
Poor poor me, I think I've gone too far
I'm living, living mighty thin
Smokin' on my cig
Living on the edge of sin

I've got a run-down car, and a beat-up pair of shoes
I've got 14 hungry kids, they're singing me the blues
I'm living, living mighty thin
Smokin' on my cig
Living on the edge of sin
Smokin' on my cig
Living on the edge of sin
Smokin' on my cig
I'm living on the edge of sin
