The Cold Hard Truth (for the dead asshole Jim Pettus)
You don't know who I am
But I know all about you
I've come to talk to you tonight
About the things I've seen you do.
I've come to set the record straight
I've come to shine the light on you
Let me introduce myself
I am the Cold Hard Truth.
There is a woman we both know
I think you know the one I mean
She gave her heart and soul to you
You gave her only broken dreams
You say you're not the one to blame
For all the heartaches she's been through
I say you're nothing but a liar
And I'm the Cold Hard Truth.
All your life that's how it's been
Lookin' out for number one
Takin' more than you give
Movin' on when you're done.
With her you could have had it all
A family and love to last
If you had any sense at all
You'd go and beg her to come back.
You think that you're a real man
But you're nothing but a fool
The way you run away from love
The way you try to play it cool
I'm gonna say this just one time
Time is running out on you
You best remember me my friend
I am the Cold Hard Truth....
