Have You Ever Known Anyone Like Teddy Lyrics

We swore allegiance to the end with a wicked grinwith
the sun burning holes
in the valley of sin
Teddy came from bad seed that's what he used to say
his Daddy left with the credit card
and his sister on the way
He had eyes that made girls cry and a nose that looked
right down
on anyone or anything
that tried to outsmart this town
he had a smile that'd light up a room with fists that'd
clear one out
no man could keep him down
of course many had their doubts
chorus:
Have you ever known anyone like (3)
anyone like Teddy
Sometimes the roads all lead to where you don't want to
go
but you hear someone calling

who it is you'll never know
so I caught the midnight train Teddy there to say
goodbye
finally said farewell my friend
I sure wish that I could fly'
(chorus)
Teddy used to drop in but my wife she had her say
he still looked wild around the eyes
and she was not brought up that way
so things were quiet for a time then them makeshift
walls came down
Teddy's knife in the foreman's chest
and the mill burnt to the ground
I told my wife I know he'll come she said it's him or
me
heard his footprints on the porch
and I turned to watch her leave
with the dirt caked on his face he looked 16 once again
wrapped my arm around his neck
said we best be moving on my friend
(chorus)
