Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times She made me a shirt out of fives and dimes Now she?s gone but when I wear it she crosses my mind And if the best is for the best then the best is unkind
I realized that Illinois was more than I could stand They say working?s best cause poverty is hell on a man Now I ride a lazy river through the Mississippi fan And if the best is for the best then the best can be damned
I spent a few years on the Queen of Spain She was a leaky little boat that went up in flames When the boiler blew some people started naming names But if the best is for the best I guess the best is to blame
I spent a few more as the Cairo Crown A heavyweight wrestler in the Midwest towns But I was lonesome for a girl who could pin me down They say the best is for the best but that?s not what I?ve found

    good luck. If you set your mind to it, then I bet you can overcome all of your issues. Remember this music is not focused on much except who has the most facebook pokes
