Thread Name: Lyr Req: There Ain't No Sweet Man That's Worth...
Subject: Lyr Add: THERE AIN'T NO SWEET MAN THAT'S WORTH...
THERE AIN'T NO SWEET MAN THAT'S WORTH THE SALT OF MY TEARS

Shaking like a leaf on a tree
That's coming loose from its stem
Shaking like a leaf on a tree
Because I'm coming loose from my man

I'm like a weeping willow,
Weeping on my pillow
It's been for years
There ain't no sweet man that's worth the salt of my tears

Down and down he dragged me
Like a pain he nagged me
For years and years
There ain't no sweet man that's worth the salt of my tears

Although I'm low
Still I know
I must tell him goodbye
Rather than have that man see me lay down and die

So broken hearted sisters
Aggravating misters
Lend me your ears
There ain't no sweet man that's worth the salt of my tears

If you want to do your friend a kindness, buy her the Norma Waterson CD, the rest of the songs on it are pretty good too

Cheers

Bill
