Between The Buried And Me

Between The Buried And Me - Camilla Rhodes

Now friend if you'll just listen to me you'll get some good hard earned advice

I don't aim to meddle in your business just tryin' to save you an awful price

Now you see these teeth I ain't got and these knots on my bald head

I'll guarantee you boys I didn't get them there just lyin' at home in the bed

Now take the smart alec in any town of him folks want no part

He acts like his head was only made just to hold his ears apart

Now he might act like what I'm bout to say and my words may make him sore

But I'm just tryin' to be thankful cause I've been down that road before

To bully folks and play mean tricks was once my pride and joy

Till one day I was toted home and mama didn't know her little boy

My head was swelled up so doggone big I couldn't get it through my front door

Now I ain't just talkin' to hear myself cause I've been down that road before

A little fellow bout my size got tired of being pushed about

So he went to work and when he got thru he'd knocked every one of my teeth out

One time too many I'd rubbed him wrong and he evened up the score

Now that's what happens when you get too big for your britches

And I've been down that road before

Now when you get to thinkin' you're really smart

There's always somebody smarter than you

And no matter how much you boast and brag you can still learn a thing or two

Go get you some treatments just like I've had and you won't hanker for more

I really learned the meaning of living and loving I've been down that road before

Now the man that walks this rocky road usually gets just what he deserves

Cause he's just a helpless servant to a master that he serves

Now I've learned to slow my temper down and not to pick no scraps no more

Boys it's a lot easier on the head and eyes I've been down that road before
