EVERY TIME I TRUST A GAL (Lew DeWitt) The Statler Brothers - 1972 (He was born on the 12th of March and the winds did blow) Since then ill winds still follow me ev'rywhere I go (He's been broke in ev'ry state and ev'ry major town) And ev'ry time I trust a gal she lets me down (He sized up a little bank in Logansvale) Then I got to thinking and I lost my nerve and threw my gun away (They caught him down by the railroad track and run him out of town) And ev'ry time I trust a gal she lets me down Ev'ry joy I've known has turned to pain If I pick me up they'll come along and knock me down again (He's gambled away ev'ry cent he ever made) If I fill my inside straight somebody else is holding spades (He's been unfit and unqualified for every job he's found) And ev'ry time I trust a gal she lets me down Ev'ry love I've known has passed me by I'll never learn cause I guess I've been passed by a thousand times (So he turns to the open road and shrugs his mind) With an empty feelin' and a lonely heart without a single dime (And we know that's how it'll always be till they put him in the ground) Yeah, and ev'ry time I trust a gal she lets me down Ev'ry time I trust a gal she lets me down (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2011)
