Poor Damned Fool Lyrics

You're a living walking dream
You're the best I've ever seen
Oh God I wanted you!
I've often dreamed what I would do
If I could give myself to you
Oh God I wanted to!

But up till now you've not been free to be
Fooling around with the likes of me
But it's changed now, though it's strange how
He's the one that arranged it now

But he's a poor damned fool
'Cause he went and let you go now
Just a poor damned fool
He never will know now

Maybe someday he'll be sad
I say that that's too bad
He never knew how much he had
I'm glad I got you now

Yes, I've had my ups and downs
As I've been rambling around
And I'll be candid
I could not believe my eyes
When I finally realized
Just what that man did

Yes I've heard 'bout finders keepers
And how losers are the weepers, that's okay
I know it's my lucky day
Still I just got to say

That he's a poor damned fool
He went and let you go now
Just a poor damned fool
He never will know now

Maybe someday he'll be sad
I say that that's too bad
He never knew how much he had
I'm glad I got you now

Oh, how I'd love to hear you say
You're glad that it worked out this way
And you'll forget about yesterday
'Cause you feel so good
It's worked out real good
You make me feel so good

I've been trying to find a way to cope
With grasping straws and fallen hopes
But he's made a way
And now his misfortune is my gain
Though for now it gives you pain
It'll fade away

And you'll find that as the years roll by
And the memories of the time you cried
Will be laid away
Yes, they'll fade away, fade away

And you'll forget that poor damned fool
'Cause he went and let you go now
Just a poor damned fool
But he never will know now

And though maybe someday he'll be sad
I got to say that, that's too bad
He never knew how much he had
I'm glad I got you now
He was a poor damn fool
